The newest addition to the Bridgetown family is Tilikum Crossing. Named for the local Chinook tribe’s word for “people,” the Tilikum is unique among its fellows, as it is the only bridge in Portland not open to private motor vehicles. Instead, the Tilikum was designed to accommodate the rapidly growing number of pedestrians and cyclists, as well as public transit such as TriMet buses, Portland Streetcar and MAX light rail. The easy accessibility, along with an LED system illuminating the modernist cable-stayed construction, makes the “Bridge Of The People” a must-see.
