I have lived in Vancouver for 15 years, and finally took my first walk over this bridge. It was interesting to view the river and Mt. Hood from the bridge.

We passed it today when we were heading to Vancouver, I haven't seen many bridges in my life but I liked it.

The I-5 Corridor is a main artery of transit up and down the west coast. It is not surprising that this bridge suffers from heavy traffic as it could stand to be twice as wide as it is. There has been much controversy over replacement...More

It is a great view of Mount Hood, on a clear day, while traveling over the Columbia River. Enjoying the view from a car is difficult though, as traffic can be so absolutely terrible at this spot. If you are traveling across the I-5 Interstate...More
