Known as both the City of Roses and the city of Bridges, Portland is famous for its International Rose Test Garden (more than 8,000 roses) plus annual Rose Festival & parade, as well as the 14 water-crossing road bridges and many additional Railroad bridges and elevated footpaths.

All these bridges are needed, of course, to span the two major rivers whose confluence marks the spot where the city was founded; the Willamette and the Columbia.
