Even 20-30 years down the road, I don't see how that could be practical.
Two 1.5 KM 2 lane bridges would not cost 4.5 billion.

Seeing how the 3KM 10 lane GMT would not even cost anywhere near that much.

The 2.7 km 6 lane Golden Ears Bridge was well under 1 billion dollars (and the included an entire expressway too).
