CRC's Hayden Island Footprint: Acceptable?

Posted by Sarah Mirk on Thu, Mar 25, 2010 at 3:01 PM

Coalition for a Livable Future has drawn up sent out some comparison images of how the Columbia River Crossing (CRC) will impact Hayden Island. Residents of the island between Portland and Vancouver rallied against the CRC earlier this year when the project unveiled a new plan that would demolish the island's grocery store to make way for a freeway interchange.

Here's what that interchange looks like:

For comparison, here's that same interchange plopped on Ladd's Addition:

Is that, perhaps, an unacceptable impact on the community? A panel of international designers are discussing the CRC tonight from 6-8 pm at the Pacfic Northwest College of Arts campus. It should be interesting, that's for sure/
