New bridge will cast a long shadow over Vancouver

As Portland frets about Hayden Island, downtown Vancouver gets little scrutiny

A massive steel and concrete structure that today exists only in technical engineering schematics will materialize high above Vancouver’s riverfront within the decade if the proposed Columbia River Crossing sticks to its current schedule.
