- Portland, Oregon: Tilikum Crossing
Tilikum Crossing, Bridge of the People is an impressive cable-stayed bridge across the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon. It was designed by TriMet, the Portland metropolitan area's regional transit authority, for its MAX Orange Line light rail passenger trains. The bridge also serves city buses and the Portland Streetcar, as well as bicycles, pedestrians, and emergency vehicles. Private cars and trucks are not permitted on the bridge. It is the first major bridge in the U.S. that was designed to allow access to transit vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians but not cars. Construction began in 2011, and the bridge was officially opened on September 12, 2015. In homage to Native American civilizations, the bridge was named after the local Chinook word for people. Anderson Design Group has rendered this artwork in the classic style of the early-20th century. You can order this lovely design as an art print, canvas, framed print, metal sign, or as a set of notecards or postcards.
