Astoria-Megler Bridge reviews
We were staying in Astoria for 3 nights and each day visited our friends in Ocean Park, WA so you either take the Wahkiakum County Ferry in Westport which is 30 minutes east of Astoria or you drive.... more »
A friend and I unexpectedly decided to head to Cape Disappointment and did not know how insanely long and high this bridge is! It’s a marvel and the views are spectacular. Not for those with a fear... more »
Ok, so this bridge is high, like really high !!! You don't realize it till you come around the corner from the coast 101 highway. If you have a driver/passenger who is afraid of heights they will not.... more »
How do you rate a bridge...it supported the car and we travel across the mouth of the Columbia which saved us from swimming, always nice since this part of the Columbia, shipwreck's aren't unheard of. The bridge was safe and has a great roller coaster like down part perfect for winter sledding. I hope this helps. Oh and it goes from Oregon to Washington or visa versa.
This beautiful bridge connects Oregon and Washington. In rain or sunshine, at sunrise or sunset this bridge is great to photograph. It is an easy drive to either side as well. The bridge is only one lane each direction so pack some patience, there are times where it can be very busy. Enjoy the scenery as you cross. There are often ships anchored on the river, to the east that are clearly visible from the bridge.
What an amazing bridge. Probably in my top 3 bridges list of all time. Side note - didnt know Washington had a town called Megler.
A beautiful bridge to photograph. Seems to go on for ever.
its such a loooong bridge has a great view.
