Cost Savings Compared to CRC
·
Bridge lands on Hayden Island near the middle of island to join existing road, eliminating expensive raising of roadway through Hayden Island. Few changes required on Hayden Island.
·
Delta Park, Marine Drive, Hayden Island on ramps kept intact  and extended over bridge to allow adequate room for weave.
·
NO interchange reworks except SR 14 are required (because of height difference to new bridge).
·
Cost effective transit is in shared right of way. 1650 current transit users DO NOT justify a BILLION dollar rail line.
·
Elimination of transit right of way saves many businesses including the Quay & close to a billion dollars in transit construction cost.
