Your Portland water activities begin at Marquam Bridge. Not driving on top of the bridge, my friends, but under!
Don’t worry, the Marquam Bridge holds importance as the first Portland bridge was the first to undergo “seismic retrofitting” in 1995, a process to modify the structure to resist seismic activity. THANK GOODNESS. Well, now we know the bridge won’t fall on our heads when we float! Great news.
Now that we know The Big Float is a safe Portland activity, let’s meet at the Eastbank Esplanade to parade our way to the river!
See you at TBF! July 31st, 2011!
