Magnificent bridge

Excellent day to drive over this historical span into St Johns. Great view up and down the Willamette from this northern most bridge of Bridgetown.

This is a scenic bridge that connects St Johns to Us Hwy 30. It can get congested at times so try to avoid during peak rush hours if you can.

Running the Portland Marathon in 2005 was one of the greatest trips of my life! Coming with Ladies from Utah to run was a blast. The marathon course was scenic; City, Outlining, and the Bridges!!! The St. Johns bridge is a tough part of the marathon, but so beautiful on approach, especially on foot! Spanning the river with the Portland... More

We found this bridge by going the wrong way to somewhere else. It is a beautiful bridge--and Portland has a lot of them. Also, the neighborhood on the east side is very interesting. I will go back and explore, now that I have found the bridge!

The bridge has an unusual "cathedral"-like shape and is beautiful. If you have time, I would advise to visit the park that is underneath the bridge and is called Cathedral Park. you can get there by car, if you are driving one, or using UBER.

This is an iconic and beautiful bridge in the city of bridges. Definitely take time to walk, bike or drive across into the enclave of St. John's. this is a super eclectic, bohemian neighborhood of Portland Oregon. So many shops, beer stops, restaurants, and cafes! One of the best areas of Portland. Don't miss it!

Lots of bridges as Portland is a city divided by two rivers. The bridges are well maintained and easy to travel

St. John Bridge is a Portland Icon. Photographed by everyone who sees it. But its not just a bridge. Beneath it lies Cathedral Park. A great place to take the kids and a picnic lunch and spend the day. This years Cathedral Park Jazz Festival is being held July 14-16.

Not a lot to see. Large cool bridge. There is so many things to see around the bridge. Have your camera ready to take lots of pics.
