Bridge ~ Weekly Photo Challenge ~ On The Move

On a recent trip home from Long Beach, WA, the weather cleared enough for me to take a series of shots of the Astoria-Megler Bridge.  Located fourteen miles (23 K) from the mouth of the Columbia River, it is the longest continuous truss bridge in North America, and was the last segment of U.S. Route 101.  A joint project of Oregon and Washington, the bridge opened in August, 1966.  Paid for by tolls, it stands as a testament to what can be accomplished with cooperation and collaboration.
