By Aimee Plante,


PORTLAND, Ore. ( KOIN ) – Fleet Week is a celebration for sailors and Portlanders alike, but it can also be frustrating for anyone trying to cross the Willamette River during a bridge lift.

Fortunately, these lifts only apply to the Broadway and Burnside bridges and happen at scheduled times. Meanwhile, Portland’s 10 other bridges will stay put.
