The Columbia River Crossing could be turned over the Army Corps of Engineers. We could send them all the work we have done so far. The Corps could do our bridge and waterways for Oregon and Washington. It would be a mistake not to plan carefully for Columbia River traffic as well as interstate traffic. River traffic goes to the Pacific Ocean and many miles to the east.
In 1803, our third president, Thomas Jefferson, had a vision, which was carried out by William Clark and Meriwether Lewis. That vision is still possible. We have a great future ahead of us and need to properly prepare for it. Think big, not small.
