The Port of Richmond is celebrating the return of American Honda Motor Company today.

Last October, Honda broke ground on a site to import cars from Japan at the port.

It created hundreds of jobs. The first shipment of cars arrived in April.

Officials with Honda and the city of Richmond will highlight the Port-of-Entry project today, which is designed to generate $85 million to the local economy over the next 15 years.
