Third Bridge Now petition

Show your support of the Third Bridge Now project and alignment.

The I-5 and I-205 bridges crossing the Columbia River cannot handle local, regional, national, and international trade and transportation needs. The lack of a third bridge is damaging to our economy, environment, livability, and safety.

The new Third Bridge Now I-305 freeway corridor will connect ports and industrial areas together in both states, move freight and hazardous material routes off neighborhood streets in Portland and Vancouver, and provide direct access to the existing freeway system.

The Economic Transportation Alliance may send this petition to State and Federal elected officials.
