However, the first two systems were ruled out because of technical problems, and, rather than simply awarding the contract to Translohr, local planners decided to re-open bidding and to include the option of a standard steel-wheel tramway. On 11 March 2005, reports Jon Winslow, the system celebrated the grand opening of its 0.6-mile (1-km) extension to River Place, including 4 additional stops.Jon notes that this extension represents "the first time the streetcars run both directions on the same street." The roughly half-mile extension stretches the total route length to three miles (4.8 km) long, with 44 stops, and allows the streetcars to travel all the way from Portland State University (the previous terminus) to River Place.As we point out in our article Denver Data Show Light Rail's Real impact on Mobility Congestion, it's a widespread fallacy and misconception "That any single transportation facility, roadway or transit, can ever truly 'reduce' congestion.
