Local news on the Columbia River Crossing:
- International Design Panel (one the project didn’t pay for) disses the project.
I had a chance to listen to the audio today, and this is the most cogent critique of the absolute failure of imagination and leadership that this bridge is. A must listen – every minute of the 2 hours is informative.
- A new panel of experts appointed by the Governors includes no Oregon representatives, but two from Washington State. I thought experts had to be from out of town?
Seriously, I think where these folks live is the least of our issues. I’m much more concerned about what their professional backgrounds are and the fact that local leaders don’t appear to have had much (if any) say in their selection.
