Battle Ground,WA council endorsement of transportation plan raises I-5 tolling concerns

The Battle Ground City Council has put its support behind an annual transportation policy plan, though not without discussion on light rail and the tolling included in the Interstate 5 bridge replacement.

During its Nov. 7 meeting, the council voted 5-2 to endorse the Clark County Transportation Alliance’s 2023 policy statement. The statement lists priorities and specific projects across Clark County, with a top priority of “addressing deficiencies in the I-5 bridge and influence area, including replacing its outdated, chronically congested and accident-prone spans.”
