Columbia River Crossing

Written by FM News 101 KXL on June 5, 2014

The closed meeting wasn’t to revive the Columbia River Crossing, but to learn from the past, moving forward building relationships.

Oregon tried to go it alone after Washington declined to vote to pay their share of the Columbia River crossing, which would have replaced the I-5 Bridge.  The outcome…they didn’t get enough votes and killed the project.

The next step is establishing a commission by both state governors.  Finding a solution that is acceptable to both states is the common goal…if they can get a yes, Oregon and Washington will be working together.

    Oregon is not on the far side of the river from teh rest of the west coast – its Washington that needs the I-5 corridor to move goods but they wont invest in it – its their problem not Oregons.
