Legislators Visit Interstate Bridge

The Port of Hood River and the Bi-State Working Group hosted legislators from Oregon and Washington to talk about the urgent need to replace the Hood River-White Salmon Interstate Bridge and requested support for additional state funding.   Port of Hood River Executive Director Kevin Greenwood says over 30 legislators and staff attended, and the group discussed why Gorge communities strongly support replacing the bridge on an accelerated timeline.   He added many of the legislators who attended are involved with their transportation committees.  Attendees walked under the bridge on the Oregon-side shoreline path to view up close the current condition of the structure, including peeling paint, the steel grating for the road’s surface, and damage from rust.
