The Opposition and Alternatives Rally is our chance to speak out to stop
funding for the Columbia River Crossing project in its current 12 lane
form, and to demand alternatives that are fiscally responsible AND
address the environmental and livability issues affecting the region. A
$4.2 billion dollar, 12 lane mega-bridge is not the solution to
congestion. The CRC is 20th Century thinking applied to a very different
world today. This project promotes single occupancy vehicle use,
invites unchecked sprawl to southern Washington, harms the health of our
neighborhoods, and creates gridlock into the heart of Portland.
