5 Bridge remains

It been 16 months since the Columbia River Crossing project office closed its doors for good.

Is it time to revisit the failed Interstate 5 Bridge replacement effort? At least one leader in Portland thinks so.

TriMet General Manager Neil McFarlane told the Portland Tribune in an article published Thursday that he believes Washington and Oregon need to address a problem that didn go away when the CRC did. The I 5 corridor remains chronically congested, and conditions have gotten worse by many accounts.

bridge is on the No. 1 economic corridor coach outlet on the West Coast. We have to get back to it, McFarlane told the Portland Tribune.

Those comments likely won come as jordan pas cher a surprise to close observers of the CRC. TriMet, the Portland area transit agency, was a sponsoring agency and strong supporter of the project before its demise. In November, McFarlane indicated in a letter to C Tran that he hogan outlet roma was holding out hope that the CRC or something like it could be resurrected someday.

Still, don expect a CRC moncler doudoune pas cher revival any time soon. Lawmakers in both states have expressed little interest in addressing the project again, meaning it unlikely to gain much political momentum. That particularly true in Washington, where the Republican controlled Senate has strengthened its majority since the chamber delivered what turned nike air max outlet online out to be a fatal blow by denying funding to the project in 2013.

McFarlane addressed the Portland City Club last week as part of a panel discussion on the future of public transit in Portland. A TriMet spokeswoman declined to elaborate on his remarks, instead referring questions to the Oregon Department of Transportation. An ODOT representative could not be reached for comment Thursday.

McFarlane remarks came on the heels of a major milestone for his agency: This month, TriMet opened a new canada goose outlet online light rail line between Portland and Milwaukie, Ore. babyliss pas cher The Orange Line also crosses the new Tilikum Crossing, a car free bridge that spans the Willamette River in Portland.

The approximately $3 billion CRC would have replaced the I mbt outlet italia 5 Bridge, extended light rail into Vancouver peuterey outlet online shop and rebuilt freeway interchanges on both sides of the Columbia River. Washington walked karen millen sale away from the project in 2013, and an Oregon led version of the CRC fizzled in scarpe hogan outlet milano 2014. About $200 million was spent hogan outlet milano in planning alone.

The project failure left a few loose ends, including a controversial agreement that TriMet and C Tran signed in 2013. The document spelled out mbt outlet roma how the two agencies would have operated light rail in Vancouver as part of the CRC. The contract only takes effect if the project hogan sito ufficiale is actually built. But it also has no end date, leaving it in a sort of limbo.

C Tran had asked that TriMet join it in terminating the agreement. In his letter to C Tran board members last year, McFarlane called that action and said his agency has no plans to do so.

As recently as last week, Washington State Department of Transportation Regional Administrator Kris Strickler said don have a project at this point when referring to the CRC. Visiting Vancouver earlier this month, air max 90 the head nike tn pas cher of scarpe hogan the Federal Transit tiffany italia negozi Administration said the CRC is michael kors outlet shop in our pipeline. to restart talks at the legislative level have also fallen short. In the most recent legislative session, state Rep. Liz Pike, R Camas, and Rep. Sharon Wylie, D Vancouver, spearheaded an effort to carve out $100,000 to hire neutral facilitators to help Oregon and Washington work together to address the I 5 Bridge. The effort failed.

At the time, Oregon House Speaker Tina Kotek, D Portland, responded to Pike efforts, telling her Oregon officials were not ready to begin anew the bi state hogan outlet 2015 conversations. 相关的主题文章:
