A while back, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced that FTA was setting aside $130M to fund Streetcar projects around the nation. That’s on top of the Streetcar funding made available under the TIGER grants.
Streetsblog is reporting that more than $1.1B in applications for that pot of money have been received.
Nice to be popular. Let’s hope that translates into lots of job at Oregon Iron Works and sub-contractors.
