I would like to think that the Morrison Bridge was named after Jim Morrison, but it is not. The original Morrison bridge was a wood bridge named after a Scottish chap named John L Morrison back in the 1880's. Needless to say, John L Morrison never had nay a hit song in the Pop Charts. So as far as I'm... More

This is a cool bridge and I like it because it connects both sides and fully goes over the river. Pretty towers.

Morrison Bridge is the simplest looking Portland bridge - just a flat bridge with interesting towers at the ends of both lift spans. Unlike some of the other bridges this bridge opens like two moat gates to let ships through. Morrison also has a unique feature - a led light display that can be programmed for special events.

This is one of the numerous bridges across the Willamette River visible from Portland's Waterfront Park. From one side it is really rather drab, but from the other you can see the two unique towers that make its picture worth a little space on the memory card of your camera.

Not sure how much a bridge requires a review. This bridge is very useful and does have interesting architecture at both ends. It is one of those which is lighted at night because years ago a group calling itself the "light brigade" decided the bridges should be lighted. Sometimes it has Unjversity of Oregon colors on it which I enjoy.... More
