igorL85 Posted October 19, 2006 Report Share Posted October 19, 2006 Greetings fellow highway enthusiasts! As previous posts mentioned, a process is currently underway to determine the future of the Interstate Bridge over the Columbia River. The Columbia River Crossing Task Force (www.columbiarivercrossing.org) has been set up and is currently discussing which alternatives to consider for further study in a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS). Alternatives can be viewed on the Task Force website listed above. If alternatives that retain the historic bridges (# 3 - 7) are not selected for further consideration, the Interstate Bridge is a goner. A great article about the Interstate Bridge appeared in the Winter 2003 issue of American Road, and more historical information is available on various websites. The time to act is now! I've prepared a template letter that you can add your name to and send in to the Task Force. (The letter is attached.) The next task force meeting is WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 25, so if we send in many letters the rest of this week and weekend, we may be able to have an influence by this upcoming meeting. Send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org or check the website for instructions. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. Please help save this important historic resource of Highway 99 and the Pacific Highway!
