Walk this bridge. It connects the South Waterfront with the east side. OMSI is just at the east end. River traffic is very active in this location.

Why are bike riders so inconsiderate of pedestrians? We took the family on a stroll across the crossing to view downtown and the rivers.

Just a simple walk/jog across this beautiful new bridge with fresh air and blue sky. It's a quiet and peaceful way to see the Portland vista and count your blessings while stretching your legs.

Leave your car, truck, van, motorhome, semi, at home or someplace else. Refreshingly just for pedestrians, zippers, roller skates, bicycles, tricycles to get across the Willamette River from Downtown (SW) to the Eastside and vice versa.

We have been across both on foot and via the max. Lovely views- good amount of space for walking. Nice to not be jammed in close to cars. you can safely walk across and take time to enjoy the views.

Not really. There is a public restroom at the Hawthorne bridge on the west side. The OHSU Medical building is open to the public and I would guess you could go in there but have not tried it. No restrooms on the east... More

Yes, it is right next to OMSI so you can walk across it from the west side to the east side. You can also get to OMSI using the Portland Street Car, there is a stop nearby OMSI.
