Oregon's new Willamette River span will be designed to look like the St. Johns Bridge in North Portland. The $134 million bridge will carry public transportation, bicycles, and pedestrians -- but no cars. "It provides both the elegance of the St. Johns Bridge and the modernity of the cable-stayed idea, and it ends up being a unique bridge to Portland's collection of bridges," said Lloyd Lindley, chairman of the Portland Design Commission.
