Welcome to rush hour grid lock. Be prepared to stop quick and watch out for rush hour rage. People do drive fairly aggressively on this stretch of road during peak traffic time.

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 is a terrible bottle neck, for travelers going both directions on Interstate 5. You will be sorry that you didn't divert to Interstate 205, pretty much any time of day.. After 7 or 8 pm, it is not bad, but unless you need to...More

Traffic on a historic bridge. Toss in the charm of the Columbia River. Not sure when the traffic dissipates. Perhaps a conversation piece. Overall, it’s still simply a bridge.

Taking I-5 is always a gamble. Take 205 if you can. Just as fast to get across the river. Much faster to Portland International.

From an architectural perspective the bridge is really interesting. Took a number of pictures from the riverwalk. Drove over it also. Wish we had time to walk it.

We were leaving Portland and were heading to Seattle. We had to pass this bridge and then we had pretty bad traffic. Then it finally cleared and we then realized why. It was because we were passing the Interstate Bridge. We don’t know if traffic...More

The traffic on this old bridge is terrible. I will often drive out of my way to go over the 205 bridge instead.
