“Spanning Columbia River”
The Astoria–Megler Bridge is a steel cantilever through truss bridge that spans the Columbia River between Astoria, Oregon and Point Ellice near Megler, Washington, in the United States. Located 14 miles (23 km) from the mouth of the river, the bridge is 4.1 miles (6.6 km) long and was the last completed segment of U.S. Route 101 between Olympia, Washington, and Los Angeles, California. It is the longest continuous truss bridge in North America.
The drive over the bridge is nice especially on a sunny day!
A stunning cross ocean drive from Astoria, Oregon over to Washington. I think we saw 5 Bald eagles sitting on poles as we took the drive. Its a quick jaunt when visiting Astoria and well worth the time to catch the view and experience mid inlet views a badass bridge.
The roller coaster bridge is a neat entry point but it’s just a bridge either way. You can’t miss it.
So cool--when you're disappointed that you can't see the Goonies house check this bridge out!! Will make up for it!!
an amazing looking structure. looks like it's been built with toothpicks.
