At just over 4 miles, it was the longest steel cantilever through truss bridge in the world when built in 1966. It connects Washington and Oregon as it spans the Columbia River. At 200 feet high it allows ocean going freighters/tankers to pass underneath. Best...More

We spent three nights in a waterfront hotel and part of our entertainment was watching the numerous cargo vessels, as they were piloted under the bridge, in the very narrow shipping channel. We drove across the bridge to have dinner in Chinook and were afforded...More

You must drive across this bridge! It's very long (about 4 miles), and rises up really high, with a clearance of 197 feet underneath for ships to pass under. In case you are wondering, you cannot walk across this bridge, as there are no sidewalks...More

We drove across the bridge and back which we felt was well worth the trip. Stunning views of the harbour. There's place to stop on the Washington side for photo taking. This is the route one takes for the return trip to Seattle via Olympia....More

Great construction! Very nice to cross. A huge bridge over a huge river separating two states. Steel and concrete surrounded by mountains, trees, ducks and a nice city

You just have to drive over this bridge to believe it. It freaks me out every time but it is amazing and worth it to see. It is an experience you will never forget. Once I drove over it in the fog after midnight. Talk...More

Approaching Astoria from the north, this is the way to enter. You approach from a part of the old Lewis and Clark Trail, starting with an elegant airy high bridge and ending on a lower end as you enter Astoria. It is a great adventure,...More

I stayed at a hotel with a birds eye view of this bridge, and took a walk underneath it. The cement pillars holding it up were huge and the structure quite interesting. We didn't drive on it this time but have in the past....soaring high...More
