Guvs Talk Tough on CRC

Governors Kulongoski and Gregoire have responded to the letter from local officials asking for more local control and review of the Columbia River Crossing project: NO.

“We feel strongly this project must go forward without delay,” Kulongoski and Gregoire wrote in their letter.

Coverage by the Trib and a particularly trenchant comparison to the Alaska Way Viaduct in Seattle from the Merc’s Sarah Mirk.

Of course, when local leaders shook out the envelope the letter came in, they did NOT find the check for $1B that the two state governments are going to have to cough up to make this project go forward as currently conceived.
