Columbia Crossing Attitudes

The Columbia Crossing project recently completed a round of focus groups with folks from both the Oregon and Washington sides of the river. It’s not on the project web site, but after hearing a summary at TPAC, I was able to obtain a copy of the focus group report and scan it (PDF 574K).

Keeping in mind that focus groups are a qualitative research tool, not a quantitative one, it’s still interesting to see that people seem to have a good grasp of some of the issues (ramp design and spacing creates a lot of the safety problems) and a very positive attitude toward transit as part of the solution set. There’s also some healthy skepticism about costs.
