Glenn Jackson Bridge
The Glenn L. Jackson Memorial Bridge, or I-205 bridge, is a segmental bridge that spans the Columbia River between Vancouver, Washington and Portland, Oregon.
Planning for the structure began in earnest in 1964 when it was designated as part of the East Portland Freeway (later renamed Veteran's Memorial Freeway), Interstate 205. Construction began in August 1977. In order to avoid disrupting river traffic, the bridge was built one segment at a time. The segments, weighing upwards of 200 tons, were cast 4 miles (6.4 km) downstream and barged into place. The bridge was opened on December 15, 1982. The finished project cost was $169.6 million: $155.7 million from Federal funds, $4 million from Washington state funds and $9.9 million from Oregon state funds. Three men died during its construction.
It is a twin structure with four lanes in each direction and a 9-foot (2.7 m) wide bicycle and pedestrian path in between. The bridge is 7,460 ft (2,270 m) long from the Washington side of the river to Government Island and another 3,120 ft (951 m) in length from Government Island to the Oregon side of the river. The main span, near the Washington side, is 600 ft (183 m) long with 144 ft (44 m) of vertical clearance at low river levels. The bridge was named for Glenn Jackson, the chairman of the Oregon State Highway Commission and later the Oregon Economic Development Commission. As of 2008, the average daily traffic was 134,800 vehicles.

I always enjoy giving credit where credit is due and since I gain as much, if not more, inspiration than I give it, I also enjoy pointing out those that do inspire me. In this case Rasone is the fellow whose images were the impetus for this twilight trip out to the Glenn Jackson Bridge in Portland. From certain angles, it is an unremarkable, and perhaps even an ugly bridge. But from others it possesses a beauty that will surprise. As a quick side note, the architecture of this bridge from underneath reminds me of Rome, specifically the rows of columns in front of St. Peter's Basilica (Ok, not Rome but Vatican City). Anyway, so we drove out this night so I could try my hand at a bit of dusk photography. This shot was about 2 minutes long with my Pentax 6x7. As I was posting this I began to wonder just who Glenn Jackson was, so I did a quick internet search for him. My first hit was for a rugby player. I figured I was still a little off the mark, but here is a brief history courtesy of Wikepedia: The Glenn L. Jackson Memorial Bridge, or I-205 bridge, is a segmental bridge that spans the Columbia River between Vancouver, Washington and Portland, Oregon. Planning for the structure began in earnest in 1964 when it was designated as part of the East Portland Freeway (later renamed Veteran's Memorial Freeway), Interstate 205. Construction began in August of 1977. In order to avoid disrupting river traffic, the bridge was built one segment at a time. The segments, weighing upwards of 200 tons, were cast four miles downstream and barged into place. The bridge was opened on December 15, 1982. The final cost of $175 million was shared by the states of Washington and Oregon. Three men died during its construction. It is a twin structure with four lanes in each direction and a 9 ft. wide bicycle and pedestrian path in between. The bridge is 7,460 ft. long from the Washington side of the river to Government Island and another 3,120 ft. in length from Government Island to the Oregon side of the river. The main span, near the Washington side, is 600 ft. long with 144 ft. of vertical clearance at low river levels. The bridge was named for Glenn Jackson, the chairman of the Oregon State Highway Commission and later the Oregon Economic Development Commission. As of 2004 the average daily traffic was 137,000 vehicles.
