Oregon House Approves I-5 Bridge Money

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — The Oregon House has approved $450 million in bonds to help pay for a new Interstate 5 bridge connecting Portland and Vancouver across the Columbia River. The House's 45-11 vote on Monday sends the measure to the Senate. The money will be spent only if Washington state comes up with its own $450 million share, the federal government puts up more than $1 billion and the U.S. Coast Guard issues a permit. The $3.4 billion project would include a new bridge for vehicles, pedestrians, bicyclists and light rail trains, along with new interchanges on both sides of the river.
