the City after sunriseI've been trying to block out that the Rose Festival is in full swing. I've been avoiding the waterfront entirely. But Betsy from Metroblogging Portland reminded me of my most favoritest thing (not): fleet week.

Basically, if you need to cross the river when the fleet is coming in or going out, make your life a little easier. If you're driving or riding, take a southerly bridge like the Hawthorne, Ross Island or Sellwood, or a freeway bridge like the Fremont or Marquam. Or a fixed bridge like the St. Johns. If you're taking public transportation, don't be cutting it too close. Or adapt a zen attitude: you'll get there when you get there.

Another fun fact, according to Trimet: each bridge lift lasts about 20 minutes....

You can add Trimet to your twitter friends for updates if you're into that sort of thing.
