Safety

Creating a third bridge over the Columbia reduces congestion and opens up new options for emergency evacuation. The new infrastructure provides secondary access to Jantzen Beach from Vancouver and more accessibility to Swan Island to relieve traffic on I-5. Wider lanes will provide added safety for freight, commerce, commuters, and everyday transportation. Traffic will not be accommodated by local neighborhoods, creating safer residential streets. The new infrastructure would be made to withstand earthquakes. Should a major accident or earthquake affect the I-5 corridor, having a third bridge becomes more of a necessity than an alternative. The new bridges would be high enough for marine traffic to pass under without the use of a lift, creating safer waters and a safer corridor. New routes will go around neighborhoods rather than through them.
