Headed for a CRC Toll Policy Show Down?

As expected, the SW Washington Regional Transportation Commission became the final local government to endorse the Columbia River Crossing Locally Preferred Alternative.

But…

In their endorsement they included a recommendation that tolling ONLY be used to pay for construction, NOT as a demand management tool.

This puts the RTC squarely opposite the recommendation on Portland and Metro which want tolls as a way to manage demand in the corridor.

Where and when do we imagine these conflicting views will get reconciled?
