3.6 billion - is that a lot?

4y ago


An excerpt from the "Boatload of Questions" video I did on the Columbia River Crossing: This clip compares the quantity of money that has been spent on planning the Columbia River Crossing - $100 million plus at this point - to the ultimate projected cost. This is worth thinking about when people say: "we've spent a hundred million dollars planning, just build it already!" Is having spent a fraction of a cost really a good reason to pay the rest of the cost? And while 100 million might sound like a lot - it IS a lot - 3.6 billion is a whole lot more.
