Traffic impacts to the city of Longview should be studied as part of the EIS. The proposed improvements to the traffic and rail infrastructure on SR 432 that would be needed to service Millennium Coal Export facility are years in the future and hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars away. The citizens of Cowlitz County cannot afford to subsidize Millennium's existence. Existing businesses in the Industrial corridor would not be able to endure the disruptions to their business that would occur during construction.
