Constructability

The Third Bridge Now project doesn’t remove homes or businesses on Jantzen Beach–the necessary land is already available. Only a one-block wide strip above the current truck route in Vancouver will be affected. There will be no flaggers along I-5 to cause a temporary increase in congestion. Construction will not interrupt existing arterioles. Since the new infrastructure would be built in an industrial area, the construction could last 24 hours a day because resident/noise restrictions are minimal. Purchasing materials now rather than years in the future would lower costs. Since the new infrastructure would be built on mostly bare, vacant, publicly owned land, there’s no removal of existing utilities. Streets, businesses, and homes would not have to be removed to a large extent, saving significant time and money. The viaduct in Vancouver would be built over existing business and streets, similar to the Morrison Bridge in SE Portland.
