Completed in 1925, the narrow, two-lane bridge is often the last chance to cross the river as you move south out of Portland.

This will be a beautiful bridge when it is reconstruction is done. It connects the east and west sides of Portland at a very beautiful, historical scenic spot. Cute shops and restaurants on both sides in nice neighborhoods. Boats and fishing below at the beaches.

The bridge is being replaced but anyone thinking of using it should know that when the Feds did bridge assessments the Sellwood scored a 1 on a 10 scale for structure and safety... it probably would have scored lower if they could have offered fractions.
