Excellent day to drive over this historical span into St Johns. Great view up and down the Willamette from this northern most bridge of Bridgetown.

The bridge has an unusual "cathedral"-like shape and is beautiful. If you have time, I would advise to visit the park that is underneath the bridge and is called Cathedral Park. you can get there by car, if you are driving one, or using UBER.

This is an iconic and beautiful bridge in the city of bridges. Definitely take time to walk, bike or drive across into the enclave of St. John's. this is a super eclectic, bohemian neighborhood of Portland Oregon. So many shops, beer stops, restaurants, and cafes!...More

Lots of bridges as Portland is a city divided by two rivers. The bridges are well maintained and easy to travel

the architecture itself is unbelievable. the park underneath is fantastic. plan to spend a couple hours at least to walk around in the park and on the beach underneath and take pictures of the bridge.
