Address Broadway Bridge Portland, OR 97209, USA

The first bascule bridge to span the Willamette River, the Broadway Bridge has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 2012.

It was in 1913 that the Broadway Bridge was inaugurated. With a length of 531 meters, it was designed to allow the circulation of cars, pedestrians and also the tramway. The tramway passed over it as soon as it opened, until 1940. In 2010, the municipality decided to redevelop the rails and the tramway made its comeback on the bridge in 2012.

Originally black, it was repainted in red in 1963. The exact name of the color is “Golden Gate red”. In the movies, the bridge held one of the first roles in the film Untraceable with Diane Lane. It also appears in the credits of Pig, with Nicolas Cage and Alex Wolff. The Broadway Bridge is one of the symbols of Portland.
