From Portland Afoot
 Statements on I-5
Keil said she does not expect Interstate 5 to be removed from central Portland in her lifetime, and that she "questioned whether that would be a good idea."
"We really don't have a lot of freeway here in Portland," Keil said. "It's hard for me to imagine where you would put a lot of that freight traffic. We're very trade-dependent here in Portland, and that freeway is very important."
She referred to proposals to eventually bury the highway as a "syndrome."
 Statements on local street maintenance
Keil said in October 2010 that the City of Portland simply doesn't have enough money to pave many of its back streets.
"We have walked away from local streets," Keil said in October 2010. "We don't have enough money. We can fix potholes."
It's not all bad, she said.
"A lot of people think of it in terms of low-budget traffic calming. If the street's bad enough, you don't have anybody ripping through."
In the year before her retirement, Keil earned $171.032.94 annually.
