The Hawthorne bridge is special. It lights up at night and is fun to drive on..for most. For me, it's easy access to downtown and an easy way to get there. It's very Portland.

The Hawthorne Bridge is a truss bridge with a vertical lift that spans the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon, joining Hawthorne Boulevard and Madison Street. Easily walkable or by bike.

I believe there are 13 or 14 bridges that span the Willamette River and this one was one of my favorites. You can walk across and visualize how/when it was built and marvel at all the metal in it. We have a couple like this...More
