I can't believe they are trying to force the bridge into reality. I think the ODOT folks that came up with this are a bunch of loons! It's obvious that someone in Salem wants this a lot more than the folks do. and then to say the tolls are going to finance the bridge... Really? what's it going to cost? $50.00 each way?

Once tools creep in for transportation fixes.. they will never disappear.. you'll see more and more and more of them throughout the State.. Crush this now or...we will see tolls as part of every highway likely within 15 years.
