Columbia River Crossing open houses affected by weather

Chris Smith at Portland Transport notes that last night's scheduled open house regarding the Columbia Rver Crossing Prject was cancelled due to weather, but officials hope to schedule another one in Clark County.

He also notes they've added a new open house on Hayden Island on Jan. 30. You can see the schedule of open houses at the CRC web site. Hayden Island is pretty close to Clark County. It's just over...the bridge.

If you're interested in this project, the 39 member task force is scheduled to vote on the staff recommendation in February. So January would be a good time to make your views known. This is going to be a tough process even if everyone acts with goodwill.

Not everyone can be an expert, of course, but a few minutes looking around on the CRC web site or going to an open house is a good way to start.
