Salem,OR- The Bi-State I-5 Bridge Committee and Oregon Joint Transportation Chairs today announced a federal investment from the United States Department of Transportation’s National Infrastructure Project Assistance (Mega) grant.  It brings the committee $600 million closer to completing the I-5 bridge replacement project.  

The funding comes from the United States Department of Transportation’s National Infrastructure Project Assistance (Mega) grant program, established by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) in 2021

The award is the highest amount yet awarded through the program and will go to the Interstate Bridge Replacement Program. Oregon and Washington jointly applied for the grant.

“A safe, seismically resilient, and multimodal transportation system means full, complete,
connected communities,” said Representative Susan McLain (D-Hillsboro, Forest Grove
and Cornelius), Co-Chair of the Joint Committee on Transportation.

This commitment from our federal partners demonstrates just how important the I-5 Bridge is to the infrastructure of the West Coast and the impact a healthy, functional Bridge has on the economy, the communities, and the industries that flourish on both sides of the river.”
