Feds Give $5M Grant For Bridget Replacement Work

Oregon Second District Congressman Greg Walden’s office announced on Thursday that the Port of Hood River and Klickitat County have been awarded a $5 million from the Department of Transportation to put toward phase two of the effort to replace the Hood River-White Salmon Interstate Bridge.  Port Executive Director Michael McElwee says the funding from the Better Utilizing Investment to Leverage Development grant will be used to fund engineering and other supporting studies.  The Port is providing $1.25 million as a match for the grant.  McElwee noted bipartisan support from the Congressional delegations in both Oregon and Washington helped secure the funding.
