Where are all the new highway lanes that extend for miles?

Where are all the new bridges to drive on?

Where are all the highway bypasses to relieve traffic?

Where are all the new high-speed one-way express way lanes like other state have?

Here’s where your tax dollars are going:

 $175 million in tax $$$ wasted on a bridge never built

“Columbia River crossing managers spent more than $175 million in public funds planning a bridge, highway, and light rail complex that won’t be built…it burned money at prodigious rates.”— Oregonian 7/4/13

Tax $$$ wasted REMOVING lanes instead of building lanes

Portland is spending millions of your tax $$$ on the “Central City in Motion” project, which will be removing perfectly good driving lanes in your neighborhood and replacing them with bus- and bike-only lanes.


No more removing lanes

No more wasting local gas-tax funds
