Ray LaHood endorses CRC

In an interview with KGW-TV’s Tracy Barry (who also scored an interview with President Obama), Transportation secretary Ray LaHood today praised the Columbia River Crossing and stated that “the Northwest could count on big federal support for a new I-5 bridge across the Columbia River if President Barack Obama’s American Jobs Act is passed by Congress.”

LaHood didn’t endorse any particular design or proposal for the project; merely noting that it is considered a priority by the Obama Administration.
