I use this bridge almost daily and even when a boat is passing through it usually takes no longer than 30minutes. Other than that it's a great bridge to take a picture of the waterfront of Portland from. Not a tourist attraction but a photographer...More

Not really sure why this has a profile on Trip Advisor. It's a fine bridge that crosses the port. It's a draw bridge for large ships to pass, but we didn't get the see it up. It isn't especially pretty or anything.

South Portland is a lively and personable place. Lots of small restaurants, shops, parks, several lighthouses and lots more. It is less touristy and full of nice people who will be happy to see you.

It was a beautiful view off the bridge as we rode over. It's a draw bridge, but luckily it didn't need to go up either time we went across it.

While on a trolley tour we crossed the Casco Bay Bridge twice and had wonderful views of the Portland Port area and of our Carnival Sunshine Ship in Port.
