Lots going on…

  1. The good folks at the Sightline Institute want to know where the cars are, noting that traffic growth on the I-5 bridges seems to have stalled out, even before the economic downtown.
  2. Economist Joe Cortright notes the large number of park-and-ride spaces specified for Light Rail in Vancouver (2,900) and estimates a cost of up to $60M just for the parking.
  3. And speaking of Vancouver, the folks at are holding a public forum “Bridging the Gaps” on June 4th to discuss various topics around the project including “Spending Accountability” and “Transparency”.
