(Olympia, WA)  --  Washington Governor Jay Inslee says he hopes Oregon will eventually get behind a project to replace the Interstate 5 bridge across the Columbia River.  Washington lawmakers recently approved a measure to address the chronically-congested crossing but many Oregon legislators say the project isn't a priority for them at this point.  The governor tells the editorial board at "The Columbian" he wants to avoid a repeat of the past when Washington walked away from the Columbia River Crossing project in 2013 after years of planning.  Inslee says he favors replacement of the current I-5 crossing, rather than construction of a new bridge.
