It serves its purpose of moving vehicles across the river, though, not if you are too high or too wide. If you are wide you risk losing a mirror. This after it's been rebuilt twice. It's pretty.

Walked the arched bridge, and had a lovely view of Willamette river and the Locks. Wish they would have widened the lanes with the recent overhaul.

The bridge is a special treat. It has been recently renovated an looks like new. The bridge is a centerpiece of Oregon City. On the bridge, you can get a beautiful view of the downstream side of the falls.
