Clark County leaders want new bridges across the Columbia River.
The Board of County Councilors is setting up two task forces to examine the possibilities of two toll-free bridges.
Council member David Madore said they want a bridge east of I-205 and another west of the airport.
“It starts with a vision. It starts with leadership. It starts with asking the people,” said Madore. “We’ve already asked the people, twice, in Clark County, and they said ‘yes, condition: It must be toll-free.’”
The mayors of Troutdale, Fairview and Wood Village have said they are on board with a potential bridge project.
