We were reading about the Bridge and the system where the central section lifts to allow larger River traffic. Having strolled through the Waterfront Park and sitting enjoying the sunshine, with great timing a larger vessel hove into view. Accordingly we enjoyed watching the traffic...More

I believe there are 13 or 14 bridges that span the Willamette River and this one was one of my favorites. You can walk across and visualize how/when it was built and marvel at all the metal in it. We have a couple like this...More

This is an interesting bridge as they do not built them like this anymore. It is however a very busy bridge so plan according.

Historic Bridge, read about it in the Portland Bridges book. Take a walk across it, or bike it. You can do a loop from the waterfront park to the eastside esplanade. It is fun viewing the fireworks in the summer from the bridge.
