Actually, the Morrison Bridge is not the oldest Willamette River bridge, it is the third newest, built in 1958 and predating only the Marquam and Freemont bridges.

And if you haven't checked the Broadway Bridge recently, you should; because they laid polymer decking on it when they built the new streetcar line, and it is also failing.
You're technically right, and I've corrected. It's the third bridge called the Morrison at that site.

Please wait...
