CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Duke Energy is suing the City of Cincinnati as part of a deal to determine who will cover the cost of relocating its utilities for the Streetcar Project.

The lawsuit was filed by Duke on Thursday at the Hamilton County Common Pleas Court.

As part of a 'Cooperation Agreement' reached between the City and Duke, the two parties agreed to seek a court ruling over who is responsible for the costs of relocating Duke's utilities in city streets.

On Feb. 1st, Mayor Mark Mallory announced the agreement, including an operations plan for how the utility company and the City will work in partnership once the Streetcar is up and running.

The lawsuit was filed just one day after the city announced construction bids for the Streetcar were tens of millions of dollars over what the project budget had anticipated.

The bids include the cost to construct 3.6 miles of streetcar tracks, as well as stations and a maintenance and operations facility.

A city spokesperson said the bids are being examined, and the administration is reaching out to all of the city's project partners to decide the best step forward.
