Who has a 3 lane interstatne freeway, that connects 2 large states by a l lane bridge. Very poor Planning. This bridge is old, outdated, and causes massive traffic back ups. Washington and Oregon need to get it figured out. Great Views between the Big...More

I would suspect that this bridge was not built to serve the amount of traffic that now crosses the bridge each hour. This can cause back-up and a nightmare for anyone who does not enjoy bridges in the first place. If the drives would slow...More

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
