Description

A 10 to 12-lane I-5 Bridge will not benefit Portland residents (or the large number of Vancouver residents who don’t drive), yet it will be the residents of North Portland who will disproportionately bear the environmental impact. The billions of dollars that ODOT, WSDOT, and the Federal Highway Administration are planning to spend on the CRC would be better spent on things that actually make our neighborhoods (in Portland and Vancouver) better places to live. I also think that focusing investments on our freight rail infrastructure would provide much more benefit to industry on a per-dollar basis.
