Painting Steel Bridge in Bloom along the Willamette River
The Steel Bridge is a through truss, double-deck vertical-lift bridge across the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon, United States, opened in 1912. Its lower deck carries railroad and bicycle/pedestrian traffic, while the upper deck carries road traffic (on the Pacific Highway West No. 1W, former Oregon Route 99W) and light rail (MAX), making the bridge one of the most multimodal in the world. Komadori takes a frame every 6 seconds. I slowed this down a little so you can see the pedestrians, bikers, trains, and trimet MAX traffic across the Willamette River today as I painted the cherry blossoms and steel bridge.
