Columbia River Crossing (draft)

• What's supposed to happen once the traffic reaches Oregon and Portland?

• What will happen when an incident closes one of the spans?

• Consider alternatives, including bracketing local spans, bridges elsewhere

• Need to be careful with private bridges so public gets a fair deal

• But private bridges might be doable given number of entities, stating from scratch

• NE 33rd (wide, non-residential street) to opposite Grand good bridge location

• Interstates should be designed for longer-distance travel, not mall access

• Fiscal responsibility is tearing down infrastructure as a last resort

• If it is for freight, where are the freight-only lanes?
