I was in Portland for the first time a few months ago and I found getting around on the rails pretty easy.

Though the old adage (for now) remains true, one cannot choose their family, and not to be a major ass - but certainly you are being facetious?

please do not misunderstand me.  Imho, I just do not think we need this outer (cassatt) outer(295) outer (fcob)bypass unless it is for rail first, when our core and inner ring is not even on life support!

WhyWhen the interchange for  Racetrack and95 could largely be a fix much like collins/295.
