Long queues of log trucks trying to clear the Industrial Way and Oregon Way intersection loaded with goods to overseas markets. Motorists stuck on the Lewis and Clark Bridge because of an accident. Commuters trapped in snarled traffic. Freight trucks immobilized by congestion. Emergency vehicles slowed from reaching injured people. Bikers and pedestrians put in harm’s way.
Listen to a radio report almost any day and that’s what you hear — all because this intersection is broken. More precisely, the intersection is overtaxed. It needs to be fixed.
