Oregon, Washington Governors Want Truss for Columbia River Crossing

Publication Date: 4/26/2011
Author: Tim Newcomb
Format: HTML

In an effort to secure federal funding, Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire (D) and Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber (D) jointly backed a 10-lane deck truss bridge as their choice for the proposed Interstate 5 Columbia River Crossing connecting Portland, Ore., and Vancouver, Wash. Gregoire said during a press conference that by making the announcement now the two states “ensure the best chance” of gaining $1.3 billion in federal funding—$400 million in federal highway discretionary funding and $850 million in Federal Transit Administration New Starts funding—and can stay on track to break ground on the $3.6 billion project in 2013.
