Portland neighbors threaten action against CRC

The Columbian

A group of Portland neighborhood and environmental groups has filed an intent to sue the Columbia River Crossing under the Endangered Species Act, The Oregonian reported Thursday.

Portland Environmental Lawyer Tom Buschele said the project’s plans for construction understate the impact the CRC will have on endangered salmon.

Potential litigants in the case include the Coalition for a Livable Future, the Northwest Environmental Defense Center and the Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods.
