group in Oregon, which now has no toll roads, plans to get
an initiative on the ballot that would allow the state to
build a turnpike from the Pacific Coast to the state’s border
with Idaho, The Associated Press reported Feb. 11.
Oregon Grange says the road would help the economies of eastern
Oregon towns, but the state’s DOT – which is struggling to
find enough money to fix the roads and bridges – says the
project is not financially feasible now.
