RE: the CRC
It seems like it would take political will to maintain tolling on the Columbia River Crossing in the future - what happens if that political will falters? Then there goes the one control valve on traffic congestion.
Then I wonder, if tolling is an option for controlling congestion in the future, why is it not an option now?
I heard Randy Leonard say we shouldn't take a laissez faire approach to traffic, but the approach he and Sam are taking in saying we need to be ready for 12 lanes of traffic in the future - as if there's nothing we can do to offset that future traffic - seems itself kind of laissez faire.
Developers will see those 12 lanes as a resource that adds value to their developments, and that'll be what fills up those lanes.
