New fee funds bridge project

The Multnomah County commissioners approved a $19-a-year vehicle registration fee to help cover the cost to replace the Sellwood Bridge.

Starting next year, most vehicle owners in the county will pay an additional $38 when they renew their two-year registration with the state, or when they register a new vehicle.

The new county fee will raise an estimated $127 million over 20 years, to cover part of the estimated $330 million price tag to replace the bridge.
