Increased tolls are necessary to build a new bridge. The Bridge Replacement Bi-State Working Group is considering two tolling options, which will be presented at the open house events. The Port of Hood River Board of Commissioners will decide which package to pursue based on feedback from these events and input from the Bi-State Working Group, so those impacted are encouraged to attend.
The in-person events will be bilingual (English/Spanish), drop-in style events where members of the public can review informational displays, get answers from project staff members, and provide input on tolling considerations. The events will not include formal presentations. Spanish-language interpretation and handouts will be available, as well as activities for children and light refreshments.
