Name the Bridge!

A new landmark is rising next door to OMSI: the Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Bridge. For the first time in our region's history, the public will be able to participate in naming a new bridge over the Willamette River. On November 3, from 12-3pm, drop by the Bridge Kiosks outside the Earth Hall to talk with project staff about the bridge and submit your suggestion for the official bridge name!

For more information about the bridge, click here.
