Bridge Replacement Project Updates
Welcome to the project blog for the Hood River/White Salmon Interstate Bridge replacement project. Authored by Kevin Greenwood, Port of Hood River Bridge Replacement Project Director, this blog will be the repository for the most up-to-date information on the progress toward replacement. It will house important announcements on policy decisions, agency partnerships, project milestones, as well as provide public access to important documents.
Replacing the bridge is a very high priority for our Port and the whole Gorge community. The Port commission is committed to replacing this critical piece of interstate transportation infrastructure as quickly as possible in an open and transparent process. We invite you to explore this blog and follow along as we take each significant step toward replacing the bridge.
