Metro Exits CRC Review Loop

On a 5-0 vote today, the Metro Council authorized President Tom Hughes to sign the Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Columbia River Crossing. And apparently Hughes signed just after the meeting.

As to why this is a horribly bad idea, I can’t possibly say it better than Joe Cortright did in his testimony today (PDF, 302K).

It would appear that the next venue where we might hope for some rationality may be the Oregon Legislature…
