THE PORTLAND STREETCAR LOOP

The Portland Streetcar Loop Project in Portland, Oregon, will be a 3.3-mile extension of the existing and highly-successful Portland Streetcar Project, which was constructed using all local funds. The Portland Streetcar Loop Project will extend streetcar tracks, stations, and service from the Pearl District in NW Portland, across the existing Broadway Bridge, serving the eastern half of the Portland Central City. The Portland Streetcar streetcars will serve 28 new streetcar stops. Later, as a separate project, the Loop will be completed via a new bridge at the south end, allowing continuous connections around the entire Loop. On October 22, 2009, Federal Transit Administrator Peter Rogoff signed the Project Construction Grant Agreement for $75 million.
