Oregon, Washington reach bridge-mitigation deal

PORTLAND, Ore. -- The governors of Oregon and Washington say they've reached an agreement with a Vancouver, Wash., company to mitigate the impacts of a proposed I-5 bridge across the Columbia River.
John Kitzhaber of Oregon and Jay Inslee of Washington announced the agreement with Thompson Metal Fab on Thursday but released no details.
Thompson Metal Fab is one of three manufacturers upstream that would not be able to fit some of their products under the proposed bridge, which would be shorter than the existing one. The states reached mitigation agreements with the other two companies earlier this year.
A project spokeswoman said she didn't have details of the agreement. A Thompson Metal Fab official did not immediately respond to a phone call.
Bridge proponents are trying to revive the project after the Washington Senate failed to approve funding.
