KOIN reports, “Washington legislators are once again revisiting the idea of a new bridge over the Columbia River between Portland and Vancouver. Rep. Sharon Wylie, D-Vancouver, and Rep. Liz Pike, R-Camas, have both filed legislation to begin the process of planning a new bridge. Pike filed House Bill 1222, which seeks to create a work group consisting of legislators from both [Washington and Oregon] to discuss bridge ideas.” The report adds, “Wylie filed House Bill 2095, which seeks to start preliminary work to develop a process for planning an Interstate 5 bridge replacement.”
