Up in Vancouver, B.C. (where I will be for the next couple of days, with a group from Metro), Gordon Price is complaining that a proposed bridge will cause land use and transportation problems throughout the region that the proponents refuse to acknowledge or analyze.
Gee, I can't think of anything like that down here.

The comparison to I5 appears apt. The problem is to get traffic engineers and highway departments to look outside their silo. Or perhaps more realistically, making sure they aren't controlling the discussion and decisions.
The I5 bridge is in its third study phase, all controlled by the state highway departments. It would be interesting to see what solutions would be surfaced if someone started from a different perspective to identify the problems and possibilities.

I'd turn the whole thing over the Jim Howell.
