Gov. Inslee Says Bridge Repair Will Cost $15 Million

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) - Gov. Jay Inslee says it will cost $15 million to repair the Skagit River bridge. The federal government has already promised the state $1 million in emergency dollars to fix the Interstate 5 bridge.
    
Inslee says he talked to U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood on Friday morning. LaHood is promising his full support to get Washington's main north-south roadway repaired as quickly as possible.
    
U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen says LaHood told him the Department of Transportation has established an interagency task force to expedite the permitting process for the bridge repair.
