Portland Bridges…

the Marquam Bridge (1966) stretches I-5 (North/South Bd.) across the Willamette River at the south end of Portland, Oregon. Note the old submarine moored at the Oregon Museum of Science & Industry (OMSI). I took this photo from the Tilikum Crossing Bridge (2015). Twelve bridges span the Willamette River in the Portland Metro area.

Photography: Spanning the Willamette River

I went down to the South end of town yesterday to take a look at the light rail bridge under construction. I took a few more photographs of the Marquam Bridge and Hawthorne Bridge. The Willamette River runs through the Portland, Oregon/Metro area. It is spanned by twelve bridges (Oregon City to North Portland.

The PMLR Bridge construction site is lit up at night. I want to explore walking out on to the Ross Island Bridge, at night, and see if I can capture a decent shot. I would try the Marquam Bridge, but there is no pedestrian passage so if you are on foot up there you are usually a jumper.
