Oregon’s Treasurer Casts Doubt On I-5 Bridge Tolling Plan!!

Here’s the thing: the majority of bridge commuters live in Washington. So the state of Oregon would need to work out an agreement with its cross-river neighbor to collect tolls from Washington drivers. Talks are under way between the states but no deal has been reached yet. Wheeler says without such a deal, he’s not sure whether toll money would be enough to pay the debt on building the bridge. Lawmakers in Olympia are wary of turning over control of tolling to Oregon. But Washington lawmakers have not approved any funding from their state to help build the bridge.
