Now, with Congress and the White House focused on transportation and infrastructure, Rep. Suzanne Bonamici — a Democrat who represents all of Washington County in the U.S. House of Representatives — is asking for $4 million to go toward safety improvements along Highway 8. Bonamici hopes to have that funding included in the bipartisan Surface Transportation Reauthorization Act, which Congress is expected to take up and pass this year. (While related in some areas, that bill is separate from an infrastructure package being negotiated between President Joe Biden and key senators, the size and parameters of which have yet to be hammered out.)
