Portland’s broken: Aerial Tram edition

From boondoggle to nuisance. Vera Katz said the Aerial Tram would be Portland’s postcard … more like poster child for a city adrift.

A 35-square-foot metal panel fell an estimated 130 feet from the Portland Aerial Tram, hitting a 21-year-old woman in the head as she walked down the stairway of a Southwest Portland pedestrian bridge Tuesday morning.

35 square feet = 7 feet by 5 feet. Looks like PBOT’s going to be writing a six figure check to the PSU student who was hit.
