Anti-CRC Rally Details Confirmed

From the Coalition for a Livable Future. The BTA joins the call and suggests folks contact their State Legislators to make their feelings know and ask Legislators their position.

CRC Opposition and Alternatives Rally, Noon on April 5th at Waterfront Park
Mark Your Calendars!

What: Rally to demand viable alternatives to a 12 lane Columbia River Crossing bridge
When: Sunday, April 5th at noon.
Where: Tom McCall Waterfront Park in Portland, just north of the Hawthorne Bridge
Special Guest Speakers: Former Secretary of State Bill Bradbury, Portland City Commissioner Amanda Fritz, and others

The Opposition and Alternatives Rally is our chance to speak out to stop funding for the Columbia River Crossing project in its current 12 lane form, and to demand alternatives that are fiscally responsible AND address the environmental and livability issues affecting the region. A $4.2 billion dollar, 12 lane mega-bridge is not the solution to congestion. The CRC is 20th Century thinking applied to a very different world today. This project promotes single occupancy vehicle use, invites unchecked sprawl to southern Washington, harms the health of our neighborhoods, and creates gridlock into the heart of Portland.

Volunteers Needed!

Looking to get more involved in the rally? If interested, please email Amanda ( with your name, contact info (email and phone), and how you would like to be involved (postcards, table, buttons any other ideas).
