So hurrah its done. One more earthquake proof bridge linking east and west side. But living on the west means I have to drive around Tyson Park (quite a trek) to get back south to cross the bridge. So it looks great, traffic is terrible, and no shorter than using the Powell Bridge. Nice job....just not that useful for me....
This will be a beautiful bridge when it is reconstruction is done. It connects the east and west sides of Portland at a very beautiful, historical scenic spot. Cute shops and restaurants on both sides in nice neighborhoods. Boats and fishing below at the beaches.
It would be nice if you finished this bridge. It certainly needed replacement but to make the choice to not add any capacity is atrocious. It should be a nice reveal of the one lane each way bridge next year to see if it worth the millions of dollars spent.
