Bridge of Steel
First double lift railroad bridge built across the Willamette (1888) by Union Pacific. They still own it to this day and lease it to the Oregon Department Transportation, who subleases it to Trimet.
The bridge get its name from the fact that it was built out of steel. I know, I was hoping for something less obvious too.
If it travels by land in Portland, it crosses that bridge. It's also the only bridge of it's kind in the world.Post a Comment
