The bridge is old, outdated and of course Oregon and Washington can not come to a decision on how to fund the construction of a new. The feds offered to cover half the cost if Oregon and Washington would split the other half. Oregon jumped on the oppurtunity as Portland relies heavally on the commuters from Vancouver to support the growing economy. Without a new bridge Vancouver might actually begin to recover from the great recession. The city of Vancouver has much to lose by improved bridge traffic. The state of Washington could lose hundreds of millions in lost sales tax revenue if the problem is fixed. The subject never made it to a vote and of course probably won't until Washington can come up with a permanent solution the the tax evasion problem it faces in major border towns like Vancouver and Spokane.
