Columbia River Crossing luncheon

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.- Citizens and business leaders met at a Tri-Cities Regional Chamber of Commerce luncheon in Kennewick Wednesday to learn more about the Columbia River Crossing Study.

Speakers went into detail about the pro's and con's of building a new bridge in the Tri-Cities, and over each of the three possible locations.

Mark Kushner of the Benton-Franklin Council of Governments says the plan for a new bridge has been kicked around since the 80's but the need for it is getting greater.
