Letter: Bridge collapse imparts a lesson

Published:

 

The recent collapse of the I-5 bridge over the Skagit River adds an interesting dimension to the controversy swirling around the Columbia River Crossing and light rail. There are those so rabidly opposed to light rail, they would like to see CRC construction delayed and redesigned, despite the millions already poured into he project.

Apparently out I-5 bridge isn't in much better shape than the Skagit Bridge was. So, if the anti-light-rail forces win, and we have to use our bridge for additional months or years, hold your breath and keep your fingers crossed as you make that crossing.
