We don’t often talk about transportation by air, but the Daily Business Journal had an interview late last week with Mary Maxwell, the Director of Aviation at the Port of Portland. It was a good reminder of the importance of aviation to the economy in our region.
There’s some discussion of the Port’s Hillsboro Airport. I’ve always wondered if folks like Intel couldn’t find a way to run air freight of high-value cargo out of Hillsboro. Given all the “cost of congestion” discussion, that would seem to me like a serious question.
On a separate note, the Business Journal has a brief note that the Port is installing a new system in its PDX parking structure to direct motorists to empty spaces with electronic signs.
