If traveling from Washington into Oregon or vice versa on I-5, my recommendation is that anyone avoid the Interstate Bridge at all costs. I-205 is a much better way to get back and forth between the two states. I-205 can be accessed both north and...More

Welcome to rush hour grid lock. Be prepared to stop quick and watch out for rush hour rage. People do drive fairly aggressively on this stretch of road during peak traffic time.

Smooth ride, clear signage, well lighted for night travel and nice views for the passengers. Try it if you get a chance.

It is a bridge that is functional. On a clear day there can be some awesome views. Unfortunately, while the bridge is fine, the commute can be terrible. There is a lot more traffic due to growth in southern Washington. Simply put the bridge is...More

This bridge is a choking point between Vancouver and Portland. Now Portland is talking about adding a toll...I hope it doesn't, it will aggravate a bad situation. The traffic is terrible and is enough to keep people from going to and from Portland if they...More

This is a terrible bottle neck, for travelers going both directions on Interstate 5. You will be sorry that you didn't divert to Interstate 205, pretty much any time of day.. After 7 or 8 pm, it is not bad, but unless you need to...More

Traffic on a historic bridge. Toss in the charm of the Columbia River. Not sure when the traffic dissipates. Perhaps a conversation piece. Overall, it’s still simply a bridge.

Taking I-5 is always a gamble. Take 205 if you can. Just as fast to get across the river. Much faster to Portland International.
