2月17日,一个普通而平凡的日子,但对于辛辛那提来说却意义非凡,因为争议已久的有轨电车项目已尘埃落定,这一天在市区的纪念堂举行奠基仪式。对于没有地铁,目前只有公交车的辛辛那提来说,这无疑是件值得让人兴奋的事情。这将成为辛辛那提市一个重要的历史转折点。

这天天气很好,暖暖的阳光给寒冷的冬日带来了些许暖意,此前几日还是阴雨天,这一天却很幸运地放晴了,这就不至于让聚集在纪念堂前的百来人感到那么冷了,由于纪念堂里面已经塞满了人,即便里面有演讲正在进行,很多人都俨然放弃了往里钻的念头,因为美国人都不喜欢拥挤。纪念堂正门前面的街道正是未来电车轨道路线的必经路段之一。

这个电车项目投资1.1亿美金,几乎横跨辛辛那提整个市中心,轨道由俄亥俄河边一直延伸到Over-the-Rhine(一地区名,中文名不详),总长3.8英里。

出席奠基仪式的领导人包括辛辛那提市市长马克.马洛里(Mark. Mallory),美国交通部部长拉胡德(Ray. LaHood),以及其他高级市政官员和部分市政议员。虽然距离辛辛那提市民真正坐上第一架电车还有两年时间,但决定启动此项目已是城市改善的一大进步,市民们都期待着这一举措能给城市的再改造带来辉煌的成果。就像市长马克所说的:“辛辛那提已经翻开了历史新一页,我们已由过去对为什么要建设有轨电车的讨论走到了项目正式启动的今天”。

Hi Everyone,

I will work on posting more articles in English, and hopefully Spanish as well, but great news!

One of Cincinnati Sister City’s volunteers has agreed to help this blog along by writing articles in her native language, Mandarin Chinese! As she is a pretty busy person, her posts won’t be too frequent, but they are very well written.

I hope everyone is looking forward to her posts as much as I am!
