ABSTRACT
The article reports that Columbia River Crossing Project is a joint venture between Oregon and Washington's transportation departments. The main purpose of the project is to analyze the renovation of the stretch of Interstate 5 that link the two states. The project will cost around $1 billion and will utilize the proceeds of bond transactions, gas taxes and tolls. Currently, the project has a $74 million budget for work on an environmental impact report, design, and engineering. A list of different alternatives to the current bridge has been narrowed down to just nine river crossing possibilities and six mass transit solutions.
