Thank you so much for printing The Columbian’s article on the Washington-Oregon Interstate Bridge replacement. How our beloved Pacific Northwest topography makes life complicated for everyone, again.

It is the first time I’ve actually seen a coherent discussion of the issue. I would have never gone out of my way to research these details from snippets on the internet, and likely none would have presented an unbiased discussion anyway.

This is a wonderful example of local journalism doing a service to the community by helping us understand the intricacies of the sausage making. Thank you to all the funders and champions of the Community Funded Journalism project who made this possible.
