Quieter nights? Not so much. Safer and clearer intersections? Not so much.

Priority passage for emergency vehicles? Not so much. Fewer fires? Not so much.

Better rail access for Amtrak and farm produce? Not so much. More security from derailments or spills? Not so much.

More economic development? How much? Increased revenue for Spokane County? How much? More jobs for Spokanites? How many, what type and for how long?
