An Updated cost estimate include the base cost + project risks + inflation. The sum of the three equal an updated cost estimate.

What is Included

Modified Locally Preferred Alternative Components:

  • Replacement bridge over the Columbia River
  • Replacement of the North Portland Harbor Bridge
  • One auxiliary lane southbound and northbound
  • Extension of light rail from Portland to Vancouver and three new station locations
  • Partial interchange on Hayden Island
  • Full interchange on Marine Drive
  • Access bridge from Hayden Island to Marine Drive

Cost Estimate Update

A new cost estimate has been developed and reflects the current, endorsed Modified LPA components and current market conditions. It also accounts for potential risks and opportunities, and expenditures for construction of the replacement bridge and facilities, occurring between 2025-2035. The new cost estimate range is $5 - $7.5 billion. Risks in the cost estimation process can be associated with unexpected cost escalation of materials or labor, inflation, schedule delays, and unplanned events or findings during construction. National and regional construction projects have seen unprecedented cost increases due to the effects of unanticipated construction interruptions, highly competitive and saturated market conditions, labor shortages, and historically high inflation rates. The Financial Plan will include additional details on estimated costs, funding sources and the finance approach.
