Columbia River Crossing Bridge Office to Close
Oregon and Washington have spent a total of two hundred million dollars on the project –about half of which came from federal matching funds.
The new I-5 bridge was expected to cost around four billion dollars, but was eventually shut down due to a lack of legislative support – mainly from the Washington side.
Opponents of the planned bridge, including environmental groups and neighbors of the site, have stated that alternative bridge options that were ignored previously may now have a chance to be explored.
