1. The Oregonian: Columbia River Crossing has spent $130 million, without lifting a shovel

Money has been pouring into the Columbia River Crossing Project (CRC) at a rate of approximately $60,000 a day. Groundbreaking is still 18 months away. The majority of money has gone into the planning of the bridge. The CRC has used approximately $180 million dollars to date. Legal battles have also delayed and increased the expense of the project. The bridge is a proposed extension of the I-5.
