The Third Bridge Now project costs are relatively low. By choosing a location where
the majority of the land is bare,vacant, and publicly owned, hundreds of millions
of dollars will be saved. The full or partial taking of 280 properties – homes, businesses
and historical resources will be averted (several are valued as multi-million dollar
properties). Time, money, jobs, and homes will be saved. Removal of existing utilities
and road infrastructure will be avoided while minimizing disruptive traffic patterns
during construction. This new infrastructure also links freight to businesses and
ports so that they may better serve one another.
