Bridge the Valley first

 

We must not allow 200 more trains to go through Spokane Valley, without first bridging the Valley to keep the trains from blocking railroad crossings in the urban areas.

Those trains do not bring any economic benefit to the area because they just pass through. This is a public safety issue because fire and police have to backtrack when long trains block roads. The extra delay could mean life or death to people with heart attacks. The people who would reap the economic benefits need to pay for fixing the risks they put us under and not expect us to raise taxes.
