Saying that there's no better place than under the Sellwood Bridge to give their message, since they claim 81 bridges in the Portland area are 'structurally deficient', a group called 'Transportation for America' picked up support from OSPIRG and Oregon State Building Trades Council at a rally on October 19.
'We're looking for greater security, cleaner environment, and a healthier America for all of us,' proclaimed their Oregon Field Organizer, Chris Rall.
'We're calling for more responsible investment of our federal tax dollars, to create a safer, cleaner, and smarter transportation system that works for everyone.'
