Portland has loads of incredible bridges, with the Fremont being one of the most impressive and probably the highest. The bridge carries I-495 traffic on two levels and offers fabulous views of the city.

This bridge carries the 405 traffic across the Willamette River. It is a very recognizable bridge in downtown Portland. Southbound traffic is carried on the upper deck and Northbound on the lower deck.
