CRC Advisory Panel Appointed

The Governors of Oregon and Washington have appointed a ten-member advisory panel to represent the “project sponsors” for the Columbia River Crossing.

While everyone involved is arguing that consensus is required among the group, the transportation commissions and legislatures of the two states have final decision authority.

No big surprises in the membership, but perhaps one small one. Metro is represented not by JPACT Chair Rex Burkholder, who sat on the stakeholder committee for the last several years and has been a strong project supporter, but by President David Bragdon, who was a more moderate voice crafting a compromise position and call for more local control.
