What is Old is New Again

Back in January I posted some photos of the Willamette River and the old Oregon City/West Linn bridge under renovation.

Designed by bridge designer Conde McCullough, designer of many of the beautiful spans along the Oregon coast, our bridge opened in 1922, and in 2005 was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

After an almost 2 year closure, our historic old bridge is reopened and last weekend's celebration was for foot traffic only. 3 days of festivities brought out scores of walkers from both cities. 

From West Linn, looking toward Oregon City.
A beautiful restoration.

The Oregon City end.

A view south toward Willamette Falls, the locks, and the mills.

It was also a weekend for the dogs.
We love our bridge!


  1. such a beautiful, and long, bridge! and love the perfect photo of the swans flying over christening it?

  2. Hi, Annette! Ha ha, I'm sure (the geese) and their relatives will have it christened in no time!
