This gorgeous bridge, also known as the Biggs Rapids Bridge, is a steel truss bridge that carries U.S. Route 97 across the Columbia River between Biggs Junction, Oregon in Sherman County and Maryhill, Washington in Klickitat County. It was named in honor of the early bridge proponent and builder of the nearby Maryhill Museum, Sam Hill.
The bridge was opened on November 1, 1962 after two years of construction. It was initially a toll bridge, but the tolls were removed in 1975. It's located in a wonderful, and picturesque area with plenty of opportunities for camping and outdoor fun.Recommended for:
