Washington Official Questions $4bn CRC

Posted by Matt Davis on Mon, May 18, 2009 at 2:00 PM

The top Southwest Washington transportation official has told the Columbian newspaper $4 billion is too much for the Columbia River Crossing:

"Just like most of us in the real world, we dream about the car we want," Wagner said in a wide-ranging interview last week. "And at some point, stark reality says, 'Huh. I dream about it, but I don't have quite enough money to get it all today. Maybe I need to take off a few of the options off of this car.' And we are starting those conversations right now."

Maybe if we scratch the light rail and the bike lanes, we could save a few hundred million?
