Williams reactivates Blue Bridge Pipeline proposal along Columbia River

VANCOUVER, Wash. – Williams Pipeline, which pipes natural gas into Washington state’s Clark County, is pushing forward a plan to run a new pipeline up the Columbia Gorge and into the Hockinson area.
The new line would largely run alongside Williams Pipeline's existing pipe, which starts in Stanfield, Ore., and runs along the north side of the Columbia River, passing north of Washougal to meet Interstate 5 near La Center.
The new pipeline would only go as far west as the center of Clark County, not clear to La Center.
Williams suspended field work on the proposal, called the Blue Bridge Pipeline, in November. But company officials planned on Feb. 10 to ask county commissioners for permission to begin surveying a possible route through county-run Camp Bonneville.
