HR County Picks Two Projects For Tucker Road Realignment Effort

Hood River County Commissioners have decided to tell the Oregon Department of Transportation to go ahead with re-alignment of Tucker Road at the Country Club and Guignard Drive intersections, and not do the work at Nobi’s Corner.  Commission Chair Ron Rivers says they made the decision after a long discussion, adding it was a change from an earlier lean to have the Nobi’s Corner work done, but they decided with Tucker Road at that location being a state highway, therefore its work should be a state issue, and these other two projects are beyond the highway designation.  The County was forced to make a choice between the projects when they were informed by the state a new Environmental Protection Agency rule on soil testing would significantly increase the County’s share of the costs to do all three of the projects, which were approved for state funding.
