On this downtown waterfront walk, we tour the largest mechanical structures in Oregon. We will begin our walk at the corner of NW 2nd & Everett, on the covered steps of the NW Natural Building.

From there, we'll visit bridge museum, meet a bridge operator, and test for synchronous vertical excitation. We'll end our walk with a no-host family-style lunch in Chinatown (extra $). We'll do about a mile of walking, crossing at least three bridges, and seeing about ten in all. Walks are ADA accessible.

    I would love to win these tickets. My boyfriend and I are unemployed and we are looking for interesting, FREE, outdoor activities to keep us busy during the fall.

    I’m hoping I can go because I missed the organized walks part of the Bridge Festival this year. (if there even was one)

    My daughter is in 3rd grade & learning about the bridges, she would love this.

    The rest of the described event sounds great, but I am absolutely positive that I need to test for synchronous vertical excitation. Heh.

    I need something like this, so I can expose my kid to technology.
    It will help give him the answer to the burning question,”Dad why am I doing all this math? What is it for??”

    I work for the city in a post where I’m less connected to city planning than I’d like to be. Please help me fulfill my dreams of planning and learning from this great city!
