WA Governor Inslee Signs Bill Calling for Study of I-5 Bridge Replacement

The Spokesman-Review reports, “With a swipe of his pen, Gov. Jay Inslee made it official on [May 10]: Southwest Washington legislators will renew conversations around how to ease traffic on the congested Interstate 5 Bridge. With the implosion of the Columbia River Crossing project still fresh in legislators’ minds, Senate Bill 5806 treads lightly.” The report adds, “As Inslee stated while signing the measure into law, it launches a process to start planning how to replace the 100-year-old bridge. The governor said he’s hopeful it will be a process that includes both Washington and Oregon.” [Link inserted.]
