Earlier this week, TDN spent about 90 minutes with Industrial Way-Oregon Way (IW/OW) project manager Claude Sakr. The meeting was very informative.
Like just about everything these days groups are lining up to protest the traffic improvements planned for the IW/OW interchange. Opponents say the reason the interchange is being upgraded is to allow coal trains greater access to the river front. This couldn’t be further from the truth according to Sakr.
