    Located slightly to the north of the city this bridge is the one that the Max train goes over to head to the north east portion of the city.

    A cool looking double decker bridge with an interesting history. Opened in 1912, it's over 100 years old. I read that it's the only double deck bridge with independent lifts in the world. Neat! I would like to walk or bike across this bridge someday.

    One of Portland's many great bridges! You can walk across most of them including this one. I would recommend going during the summer, when it's a nice day to walk across the bridge.

    In Portland it's easy to take a bridge walk and I've taken 4 over my several trips to the Rose City. Here are my stories....(Cue the Law and Order Clang).

    The 1912-built Steel Bridge is a through truss, double lift bridge across the Willamette River. It carries railroad and pedestrian traffic on the lower deck, and road traffic and MAX light rail (of which I've taken many times on the red, blue or green lines) on the upper deck. It is the only double-deck bridge with independent lifts in the world and the second-oldest vertical lift bridge in North America, after the nearby Hawthorne Bridge. The bridge links the Rose Quarter and Lloyd District in the east to Old Town Chinatown neighborhood in the west.

    I also like the twin black towers as they are silueted along the river. But unlike the Steele Bridge, I'm not as sturdy, reliable, and unassuming as I could be.

    I just rated a bridge.
    As bridges go, this one is pretty cool.

Description:

If you appreciate architecture, make sure to visit Steel Bridge located in Portland, Or off of Oregon St. This bridge spans across the Willamette River, and it displays an intricate design. This bridge has two decks. One of the deck is for foot and bicycle traffic, and the other is for vehicle traffic. The architecture is unique because it displays both an industrial and intimate feel. When you cross the bridge by foot, make sure to take your camera with you because you can capture breath-taking views of the two black towers.
