This bridge is picturesque when viewed from afar. Otherwise, it is just a bridge, heavily used by commuters, and of minimal tourist interest outside of those interested in civil engineering or bridge design. Although the arch may be reminiscent of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Fremont Bridge is not designed for daily pedestrian access and there are no climbing tours... More

When this bridge was finished in the early 70's anyone who wanted could walk across to celebrate. BEST VIEWS of docks, city, mountains. Someone else should be driving if you want to take in the view from a car. Top level is Southbound, Northbound lane is beneath, so limited views.

This high bridge offers great views of Portland. This bridge is modern and adds some hip interest to the Portland skyline.

It's quite the view for up there! I found it impressive when I realized that I was driving through the air at a height greater than any of the buildings in Portland. ...okay, so that might be a tad hyperbolic and overly-inclusive.

I crossed this bridge coming down the freeway looking for our exit to the RV Park, so driving a large RV while towing does not provide sightseeing time; however, my copilot wife said the views were wonderful as the traffic was quite slow. I guess this is the highest bridge in Portland, the city of bridges. Once settled we took... More

This bridge carries freeway traffic so normally the driver should be paying attention to the road. If you are a passenger there are beautiful views of the Wilamette river in both directions. There's tend leads you to an industrial area that is becoming gentrified. The east end takes you to neighborhoods of shops and dining establishments along with less desirable... More
