Voters in Clark County will soon have their say on the best routes across the Columbia River.

They will also be asked to vote on the future of light rail and bus rapid transport.

It’s part of six nonbinding advisory votes that county commissioners have placed on the November ballot.

The Columbian reports that three of the measures will ask voters whether they favor an Interstate Five replacement bridge, or a new bridge to the east or west.

Two will ask if commissioners should oppose any light rail or bus-rapid transit project that has not been already approved by a countywide vote.

And the final measure will ask voters if they want to limit use of fireworks to July Fourth.

The three bridge measures are designed to let county commissioners gauge voter preference on ways to solve congestion on the Interstate-5 Bridge across the Columbia.
