Staff Cops to $6B Price Tag for CRC

Jim Redden has a piece in the Trib this morning indicating that by the time you roll in all the interchange improvements, we may well be looking at $6B for the Columbia River Crossing.

It’s kind of ironic that the entire gap in funding for the Regional Transportation Plan is $6B, and we’re looking at dropping that much on one link in the system.

Now, I don’t necessarily think I want EVERY project in the RTP built, but basically we’re saying we could have the transportation system we desire if we had those funds available for the rest of the region.
