Do you drive over any "Drawbridges"?

It seems that nationally, due to maintenance costs, all major drawbridges are "going away" as new, fixed bridges replace them. How many people still travel over draw bridge roads? Do you like that part of your drive?

We have quite a few movable bridges in Portland, Oregon, we haven't heard anything about replacing them with fixed bridges. We drive over them occasionally - we admit they're a bit bumpy - but they don't bother us at all.

I usually drive over fixed bridges. Or at least I think they're fixed. I'm not sure.

No drawbridges for me!

There are still quite a few by the Jersey Shore and I drive over them sometimes. They're kind of charming, but all the same, I prefer the convenience of fixed bridges.

Well, I guess this question was prompted by the recent collapse of the I-5 bridge over the Sakagit River just up north of Seattle, WA. in Mount Vernon, WA. Well, yes I have!!!

Think we only have one near us, and it ain't even that near us. It's an hour away. Yes, I drive over it though, if where I am going requires it. We have a huge thing in our area in June -- Riverbend -- people from everywhere come & we always walk that bridge. A really beautiful place too.

No, I don't necessarily like the drive. I do love walking on it. I've done that since I was a kid -- my mom used to take me. It's just a very nice, peaceful place. Except the spiders. EEEEWW! They are freaking everywhere, but they are only in the side fence thingy, but I still hate them with everything I have. Lol.

the only drawbridges I know about are in Seattle and Portland, neither of which I cross often. It's not a main Seattle bridge either, no where near where I usually am.

I used to, but then they put a toll on that bridge. I avoid it if possible now.
