Oregonian Begins to Recongize CRC Reality

No one is going to step up to pay for the current overblown design of the Columbia River Crossing.

So how much longer will we keep spending millions per month planning something that shouldn’t, and perhaps more relevantly, can’t, be built?

What needs to happen now is:

  • Amend the project purpose and need statement to retain the elements that are truly important:
    • Reliable freight mobility
    • Improved transportation choices for people
  • Return to the DEIS phase
  • Re-evaluate options based on:
    • Realistic demand models
    • Least-cost planning

The question now is which leader or leaders are going to step up and have the fortitude to insist on this?
