Live with this for 20-50 more years?
ODOT wants us to live with this for 20-50 more years - Afterwards replace it for over $1 Billion.  Why isn't anyone questioning this nonsense?

Ed is On IT!

Thanks for your hard work.  What kind of cat do you have?

Thanks Jeff- Hope you can go! And my cats

Thanks Jeff!  Hope you can make it to the meeting to find out what the hell is going on with ODOT and its BILLION DOLLAR bridge proposal.  They are have removed the only logical alternative because they claimed it would take the Greek Orthodox Church, but ODOT finally admitted that the church would not have to go.  For the same reason ODOT claimed to remove the Southern Bridge Alignment from further consideration, they MUST reconsider that alternative because its North Bridge proposal will take historic properties. 

Gordon Proctor is a better magician than David Copperfield, because he made the Southern Bridge alternative DISAPPEAR without a trace.  Now, lets see how good he is at making it REAPPEAR because federal regultions mandate it.  Is ODOT anticipating the demolition of the historic buildings in the path of its North Bridge alignment?  Is this federal historic review process a dog and pony show?  We will find out soon!

So far our elected officials seem to be clueless because they have accepted ODOT's plan without considering the alternatives and the concerns of their constituents! 

The bottom line is that the public must demand a valid unbiased study (not B&N or Baker) to compare the cost, feasibility, traffic interruptions, and economic impact for the North and South Bridge Alignments- period.

As for the cat, I'm not sure what you're getting at with that.  However, I don't have a cat now, but we used to have two family cats when I was growing up- an orange tabby (Sunshine) and a blue Russian (Carlos).  I took Sunshine in when I found him on the streets of Slavic Village.  Both cats were my buddies and lived for about 20 years.  Thanks for reminding me of them!
