This bridge dates back to 1888 when it carried railroad cars over the Willamette River. Today, the Steel carries the modern version of the electric trolley, MAX. With tracks for other trains and two-way vehicle traffic as well as foot traffic, this is a busy bridge. This link between Waterfront Park
and the Eastbank Esplanade
is among the world's last working dual-lift bridges. While the lower part carries pedestrians, cyclists, freight and passenger trains, the upper deck (lifting independently) handles MAX and vehicle traffic.
