Why is the Bikes/Transportation Section So Dead

I continually check back for news and events in the Bikes/Transportation section but am almost always saddened by the lack of independent community reporting.
I still expect and am interested in the views of this community when it comes to transportation issues. Where are the stories and the activism around the Columbia River Crossing Corridor, for example? This massive freeway project has major social social justice, financial, and environmental impact and it's practically radio silence around here.

If you want me to step up on this beat, I will, but I don't want to waste my time and have my stories be canned because my reporting and tactics do not fit a prescribed model. Doing nothing and radio silence may be an choice but it's not an alternative.
