Get Behind the Wheel of a Big Rig


On Tuesday (9/16) the Portland Water Bureau will give all us regular joes the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a big city dump truck and take a look around.  Trust me, it will give you a new perspective and appreciation for the people safely operating these trucks in traffic.


Alright, it might not be THAT big


And if getting behind the wheel of dump truck isn't enough to get you out to the Rose Quarter, then perhaps free refreshments, a short movie on truck safety, and the opportunity to chat it up with some of the city's Water Bureau pros will entice you.  Here are the details:

What: Dump Truck Tour (or Traffic Safety Event, hosted by the Water Bureau)

When:Tuesday (9/16) from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.

Where: Rose Quarter's Benton Parking Lot at N. Broadway and N. Larrabee (map)
