Our First Transportation System

Tuesday’s Tribune had an interesting feature article on the Portland Harbor and the conflicting demands on it: working industrial land, port facilities, riverside trails, environmental cleanup and habitat restoration.

The Willamette River was Portland’s very first transportation system, and is still one of our most significant. Indeed, the confluence of Freeway, Rail and Marine transport is still one of our big economic advantages.

How do we balance all these conflicting aspirations for the river and river-front?
