The bridge would cross the Columbia River from East Vancouver and would end up in Oregon near Northeast Airport Way.

 

Clark County Commissioner David Madore was an outspoken opponent of the Columbia River Crossing, but says this plan is better because its cheaper and doesn't include light rail or tolls.

 

"The reason that we don't have tolls on this, we would end up doing more harm than good.  It will trigger tolls on the other bridge, I-5, and 205 just in a matter of time."

 

A third bridge has long been considered to relieve congestiion between the two states.

 

He says it would cost an estimated 860 million dollars.

 

Before any plans would go forward, the two legislatures and two Governors must sign off on it.
