Portland's Car-Free Bridge

A car-free bridge? How does that work? Portland's new Tilikum Bridge is just being completed. It is
a multi-modal span that will serve buses, cyclists, pedestrians and trains — but no cars. It's got everything else though; a walking and biking path, transitways free of traffic congestion, sleek design, bike counters and even a scenic lookout.

Streetsblog has a preview of the bridge and all it's amenities before it even opens to the public.
