As candidate against the cheer leader in the Oregon House (Tina Kotek) I can say this bridge is way more expensive than similar bridges throughout the nation. Tina is cheer leading a TOLL BRIDGE to Debt and she will not back down.
I however advocate looking at other bridge solutions which are 10% or less the actual cost of her bridge solution that she is pushing.
As for the other comment... There is three other bridges offered in the region which would ease congestion, as well as alternatives for this monstrosity of a bridge (One of which is equal in all aspects as this bridge, but at minimum 3 billion dollars cheaper)
I am Michael Harrington, and I endorse removing the bridge in consideration, firing the current bridge commission, and creating a new group to look at the alternatives and at bridges made through the nation (and the Construction Companies that built them) and getting bids after contacting such companies as do make bridges.
