This is a neat bridge that crosses the Columbia from Washington to Oregon near where the Columbia enters into the Pacific. While it isn't the Golden Gate, it's still impressive. I have memories of crossing here before this bridge existed on a ferry. I seem to recall it being in the 1960's, and to a kid the ferry was big... More

The bridge connects Astoria with the state of Washington at Point Ellice across the Columbia River. The bridge is almost 22,000 feet long which is just over 4 miles. There is one lane in either direction with bike lanes. The lanes are wide enough for large trucks, Motorhomes, etc. Pedestrians are allowed on the bridge only one day a year... More

4 miles across the Columbia river, with an interesting corkscrew on ramp on the Oregon side. Worth going over, in and of itself, but more so as quick access to nearby Ilwaco and Cape Disappointment

Even though there is construction going on, the traffic flows rather nicely. The view from high up on the bridge is fantastic. At low tide, many birds, including bald eagles are sparing along the bridge, or feed on the sand banks. Just beautiful.

October 17, 2016. This was the second time crossing this bridge...or last was in 1999. When we crossed the bridge this nearly closed out our family move to Washington from California! Always some great views! I must do and why not cross over and turn around and come back!

You can start of finish the exploration of all "363 Extraordinary Miles" of the Oregon Coast. It's the People's Coast because an early Governor had the foresight to protect it in public ownership. Start in Washington and a short way over this 4.2 mile wonder you cross into Oregon. You loop down into Astoria, the oldest American community west of... More

My husband and I are from Australia and we were so impressed with this feat of engineering. We went over it twice. I loved the town of Astoria as well.
