Tolls Don’t Pencil for Sunrise

Yesterday’s Oregonian reports that tolls may still work to help add a lane to I-205 (although it’s challenging), but they probably don’t pencil out for the Sunrise Corridor.

At nearly $1 billion, the Sunrise Corridor project costs too much and would not attract enough toll-paying traffic to make financial sense, according to a report released Wednesday by the Macquarie Infrastructure Group, an Australian company that has been exploring the concept.
