The Rising Tide bike riders took over the streets of North Portland Sunday, June 14th, shouting “Twelve Lanes? That’s Insane”.Their slogan refers to a proposal to construct a new I-5 bridge known as the ‘columbia river crossing’ between Portland and Vancouver.
Protesters also hung a giant banner from a rooftop on Mississippi Street, near Mason, last night, which read “More lanes equal more cars equal more climate change.
No Columbia River Crossing !”
