There is a joke here that they planned the routes on even state highways here with a red crayon and a map. The merging on the west side is insane. Four into two lanes with no lights only street signs. A testament to the good manners of Portland drivers. California drivers beware. Earthquake proof bridge, yahoo!

I walked across this bridge...finally. You can only do this on the Portland,north, side of the bridge. Kinda death defying to have those cars a couple of inches away. When you get to the east side there is a pok poks and a sausage store. You can return on the Tillicum bridge. Very long bridge and I bet you will be the only walker.

The Ross Island Bridge is a cantilever deck truss bridge built in 1926. It was designed by Gustav Lindenthal. And is the route that US 26 (The Mount Hood Highway) takes across the Willamette River connecting southwest Portland to South East Portland. It is near Ross Island Named after Pioneer Sherry Ross who arrived in the Oregon Country having journeyed here via wagon via the Oregon Trail in 1845. And this is how the bridge also came by its name.

Notable landmarks are of course Ross Island to the south of the bridge.

Then there’s the elusive Poulsen House hidden nearby the southeast exit from the bridge. It is a bright yellow house built in 1892 in the American Queen Anne style and has been on The Register of Historic Places since 1977. It was built for John Poulsen who was co-owner of Inman-Poulsen Lumber Company, once the largest lumber company in Oregon.

And just a couple blocks east at SE McLaughlin you will find the Aladdin Theater.

The western approaches to this bridge are absolutely insane. If you're a tourist or a traveler and you can avoid it, do so!
