Join the Arch Bridge 100 Celebration on October 1, 2022 (Photo) - 09/26/22

WEST LINN, OR – September 26, 2022 – Join the communities of Oregon City and West Linn for the Arch Bridge 100 Celebration on Oct 1 from 9AM-1PM. The Arch Bridge connects the cities of Oregon City and West Linn.

The bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic from 7AM to 3PM for the event.

In 1922, the two cities celebrated the opening of the Arch Bridge. 100 years later, we come together again to remember this historic event and celebrate the connection it provides between our two cities. Live music, art, food and a historical reenactment of the original bridge opening ceremony are just some of the fun activities planned. 

The main program starts at 11AM and includes a welcome by mayors from both cities, a Tribal Blessing from the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde, a gift exchange between all three communities, a historical re-enactment of the 1922 wedding at the bridge opening, and murals connecting the three communities. 

Community partner organizations will have booths in downtown Oregon City and at West Linn Historic City Hall with historical information, kids’ activities, memorabilia and event-themed commemorative items.

On the National Register of Historic Places and built by the Oregon Department of Transportation in 1922, the Arch Bridge is an iconic structure spanning the Willamette River and connecting these two cities both physically and in spirit.

Event partners include City of West Linn, City of Oregon City, Oregon Department of Transportation, the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde, West Linn Chamber of Commerce, Historic Willamette Main Street, Travel Oregon City, West Linn Historic Society, Oregon City Chamber of Commerce, Portland General Electric, Mt. Hood Territory, Clackamas County Historical Society, and Willamette Falls and Landings Heritage Area Coalition, as well as many volunteers and contributors.
