“Long, ugly bridge”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

All along the Oregon Coast reside many elegant, beautiful. art-deco style bridges. This erector set mega bridge looks like one of those tooth pick bridge projects from high school engineering class painted bright green. It is looks rather fragile to me. I see nothing about this bridge to like visually.

“"Take in the views"”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Very neat exsperience to see everything from very high up and then feel like you are right on top of the water on the washington side. Very narrow so by the end of the long over four mile crossing im always ready to be back on the ground though. No crossing fee so if you are in the area cross over and back just for fun. the kids will enjoy the trip.

“Spectacular Views - Long Bridge”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

At the first sight is ugly and disproportional. But when you start to cross it you realize that the views are really beautiful and the construction starts to make sense. It's really long and unique.

“Awesome Views”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Very long bridge with some of the most spectacular views of the Columbia River around. You need to travel the bridge both ways so you can get a view of the Washington shore and Astoria on the return. They were working on the bridge when we were there so we had a wait to go and come back but it was well worth it for the scenery.

“Super impressive”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

First view of the bridge from Dismal Nitch over on the WA side - great photos with lots of scenic picture options. Impressive to drive across and learn about this engineering feat.
