eXpAnD I5 pOrTlAnD iS DiFfErEnT

The problem with Portland traffic isn't the amount of lanes. You have to view freeways like blood viens, from 1100 to 1900 Portland and thus Vancouver is a clogged artery. The only way to relieve, you will not compleatly get rid of congestion, is to build a a 3rd freeway that starts jus tnorth of Vancouver and ends/starts just south of portland. This freeway will have zero on/off ramps and be just a through way for traffic going norht and south, I-5 is one of our busiest Interstates. This freeway would have to be elevated, most likely above I5. This would take a lot of money and time and cause massive delays and headaches during the construction.
