New task forces look at bridge prospects for Columbia River


VANCOUVER, Wash. — Officials in Vancouver are seeking community members to serve on two task forces that will be exploring options for new toll-free bridges across the Columbia River between Washington and Oregon.

Each task force will include 10 community members from the two states to gather information and make written recommendations for a bridge design that can be constructed quickly.

One group will explore options for a new bridge between I-205 and Troutdale, Ore. The other group will work on ideas for a bridge that will be located west of the Portland International Airport.

Prospective task force members and people who want to offer expertise to the project are asked to contact David Madore of the Vancouver Board of County Councilors.
