The final days of the legislative session were very good for Streetcar in Portland. The package of Lottery bonding projects included two key items:
- $20M for vehicles for the Streetcar Loop
- About $250M for the bridge for Milwaukie Light Rail
That means that not only are we in good shape for the capital side of our Federal application for the project segment to OMSI, but that we can see a non-too-distant future where a bridge will complete the entire Loop route around the central city.
