That an alleged major city like Portland's main interstate freeway is still just four lanes (2x2) through that section of the just asinine. Think of the infrastructure that could have been done here, with the money that instead went to the farce of light rail. For one, perhaps we wouldn't still have that joke of a bridge between Jantzen Beach and Vancouver.
