Bridging the Gap: the History of the Interstate Bridge

This exhibit opened February 3rd, 2011 and closed on October 29th, 2011.

This exhibit features the subject of much local debate: the Interstate-5 bridge that spans the Columbia River from downtown Vancouver to Jantzen Beach. We created this exhibit in order to provide context for the current bridge debate by showing how the bridge was begun and how it has changed since the idea was first conceived over a century ago.

Although this exhibit is no longer on display at the museum, it will be on special exhibit on Saturday, January 21st and Sunday, January 22nd, 2012, at the Palmer-Wirfs Antique and Collectible Show at the Clark County Event Center in Ridgefield, Washington!

The Interstate Bridge is also the subject of a featured article in our 2010 Clark County History Annual, available now at the museum! Call us at (360) 993-5679 or send an email to info@cchmuseum.org for more information.
