Tucson's streetcar arrives from Portland Friday

TUCSON - The first streetcar in Tucson's history is set to arrive from Portland Friday morning.

The first shipment of the cars left the Pacific Northwest Monday morning on its trek to Arizona. The car was loaded on a flat bed truck Monday morning from United Streetcar, a subsidiary of Oregon Ironworks. That's the company contracted to design and build the streetcar system.

Testing on the streetcar on the newly laid tracks still needs to be done before it's open for public use. That's expected to get underway in October. Completion of the streetcar system is expected next year.
