In Portland, Oregon there are many ways to cross the Willamette River. One of the cities nicknames is Bridgetown. There are something like 10 bridges that cross the river in the PDX area. I think that the prettiest and most architecturally interesting bridge is The St John’s Bridge. According to Wikipedia It is the only suspension bridge in the Willamette Valley and the furthest north on the Willamette River. It was opened June 13, 1931.
