SMELL THAT CRUDE
Grays Harbor County and its surrounding area are strategically important to the security of our region and nation. We are the gateway to the coast of Washington, with an international seaport, a rail connection to the main line, a certified airport and a freeway to our states population center and military bases.
We must replace the two rail bridges that were torn down on the Chehalis River, with combined train and car bridges, relocated to join Aberdeen, Hoquiam, Cosmopolis and Junction City into one industrial base, including a "holding and switching yard" for products of concern. These new connections will bring an added efficiency to our emergency departments, while enhancing the security of our region and nation.
The funneling of highway traffic into downtown Aberdeen without adequate parking is a problem, but can be relieved by relocating the highway to State Street traveling east, and to First Street traveling west, allowing the streets in between to be converted to the friendlier two-way streets, and with the wider streets, patterned after Broadway Street's angled parking, dramatically improving the parking and ease of movement.
Broadway Street could be extended to the Chehalis River for a cruise ship dock, and a multi-use depot (for train, riverboat and bus excursions), surrounded by shops, restaurants and lodgings, reflecting our colorful past and rich Native American culture.
