The first span of the Interstate Bridge opened in 1917. It was the first automobile bridge between Oregon and Washington. Much later, in 1958, the second span was built. The original span now serves to convey traffic north into Vancouver. The bridge was designed by J.A.L. Waddell who also designed Portland’s Steel and Hawthorne bridges.
