On Tuesday June 30, 2009 Congressman Earl Blumenauer was one of the first Portlanders to hop on board TriMet's new MAX Green Line. The Green Line is the newest light rail route in the Portland Metro Area, and will extend from Clackamas Town center to Portland City Center.
In his remarks Congressman Blumenauer celebrated the federal funding match for the project as well as federal investment in several stimulus-funded projects that will make the MAX even better for Portland-area residents.
The construction of the MAX Green Line provides over 7,500 jobs in the Portland area.
