It's Tilikum Crossing, a Chinook word that means people, tribe and relatives....It's unique in that will carry light rail, streetcars, buses, bikes and pedestrians, but be off-limits to private vehicles.
Officials say it will be the only such bridge in the United States.
Congratulations, Portland! That's a great name, and the bridge, which I saw on my last trip south, is beautiful. I'm just saying: Portland is again getting a transportation idea exactly right. And Seattle should be shameless and copy the fuck out of Portland's good transportation ideas. A bridge like this stretching from downtown to West Seattle would solve a whole lot of traffic problems.
