Oregon Iron Works sues CRC over mitigation payment

Oregon Iron Works is suing the Oregon Department of Transportation over the value of a mitigation agreement it reached with the state and Washington over the height of the Columbia River Crossing. Under the agreement, Oregon Iron Works was pledged $11.8 million under the mitigation plan. Greenberry Industrial was pledged $24.8 million and Thompson Metal Fab was pledged $49.8 million. The agreements were made in order to mitigate for potential economic impacts to the companies, whose products could not be barged below the 116-foot proposed height of the replacement bridge.
