LaHood, Blumenauer Christen New Portland Streetcars
Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood joined Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) in Portland today to christen the city’s new fleet of made-in-the-U.S. streetcars.
The streetcars, the first to be crafted in America in 58 years, are manufactured by Oregon Iron Works. The 65-year-old company has won agreements to build six for the city of Portland and seven for the city of Tuscon, Arizona.
