Concerning funding for the Columbia River Crossing transportation project.

Lists key concerns you have about the CRC.
(Here are a few thoughts…. )
• The current bridge has 60 yrs of life left no need to replace it.
• We need additional crossings
• The I-5 freeway is Full and the bridge is fine
• Costs are out of line for project deliverables
• Will not relieve congestion, help move freight, or enhance highway system
• We have not been shown a range of alternatives to chose from have you?
• We must have a range of alternatives to chose from…
• Up to 300 hundred homes are fully are partly affected
• 6-9 yrs construction on the I-5 freeway with I-205 the only other bridge for dozens of miles. Who thinks that safe? Or smart?
• Tremendous loss of permanent job
• Vancouver has voted down light rail more than once …
• Tolling amounts are unknown, at least $4 each direction, draining $100 million out of the regional economy.
• Very little local support with
