Ted Wheeler Agrees, CRC Traffic and Revenue Projections Unjustified
Coverage from WWeek. We now have two State Treasurers raising serious concerns about the assumptions behind the Columbia River Crossing project. Can they sway the Governors who so far seem to have been undeterred by any reality?

Finally sanity is starting to set in!
Hopefully this will kill the this mega-project boondoggle so that we can get back to the basics of just building a bridge for 81,000 daily road users and postpone building LRT for the 1650 daily transit users and maybe even scale back the expensive accommodations for the 150 daily bike users and 30 daily pedestrians.

The real money sink is the unnecessary interchange rebuilds ($1.8B)...downsize the bridge and drop the freeway rebuild. Light rail and bike/ped are either funded from different sources (FTA) or of no financial consequence.
