CRC Gets $5M More to Advance Unfundable Design

The Columbia River Crossing project today announced the receipt of two grants (one through ODOT, the other through WashDOT) totaling $5M:

CRC received the award available under the Interstate Maintenance Discretionary (IMD) Program with a $2 million grant to the Washington State Department of Transportation and a $3 million grant to the Oregon Department of Transportation. A total of $100 million was available to be awarded nationwide under the IMD program and priority was given to projects with high traffic volumes in urban areas.

I’m not sure whether to be glad it’s not local money or in despair that the money pit seems boundless…
