Article here makes the $98,000,000 estimate seem like a downright bargoon in this age of the billion dollar project. I just love how “reducing traffic congestion” seems to be the main selling point. Is the article really about the bridge work or is it about the renovations in downtown Sainte Anne De Bellevue and further development in that area and Ile Perot? It all seems so much like spin to me.
Bridge + Local Redevelopment + Development = Not reduced traffic congestion. Perhaps politicians should be held accountable for what they say projects will be all about? If this project does not reduce traffic congestion then let them be responsible – even if they are out of office at the time.
