Port of HR Takes Steps In Bridge Process

The Port of Hood River Commission approved a number of set up pieces and agreements as the Hood River-White Salmon Interstate Bridge replacement process moves from theory toward reality.  Port Executive Director Michael McElwee says they are starting the implementation of the planning process, with the contracts approved this week bringing in experts and consultants to move forward in a “rigorous and disciplined way.”  The Port recently hired Kevin Greenwood as project manager for the bridge replacement.  Port Commissioners will hold a worksession next Thursday (January 18) at 1:30 p.m. in the Port’s Marina Center conference room with a panel of experts to discuss various elements of the project.
