Another Reason for Streetcar to Celebrate

Just in time for the fifth birthday celebration for Portland Streetcar, word just in that the Oregon Transportation Commission has awarded $2.1M from Connect Oregon to the Lowell St. extension. This should cap the funding plan for the extension and insure the opening of another segment in about a year.

Connect Oregon is a $100M State program intended to complement the OTIA programs benefiting roads and bridges in the last few legislative sessions. Looking at the awards list, freight and transit are big winners.
