Just a quick hit from the morning paper...
This has been percolating for a while, so it's not exactly new news. The pre-proposal packets largely date from November and December:
the Capital Press had a piece that went into more detail on potential problems, one of them being a mismatch with the source and flow of empty containers, another the existence of transfer facilities already in the Portland area, and both the SJ and CP pieces are worth a read.
This would be a significant regional transportation hub, and even if it's outside the usual Salem and urban focus here, it is worth knowing about.
