From Portland Afoot

Jump to: navigation, search

Clark County, Washington, sits opposite Portland on the north side of the Columbia River. It ranks third in population among the metropolitan area's four counties, after Multnomah County and Washington County.

The county's cities are:

The county itself acts as a municipal government for the large urban area outside Vancouver's city limits, including Hazel Dell, Salmon Creek, Orchards, Brush Prairie, parts of Minnehaha and other neighborhoods.

Clark County's sole mass transit agency is C-Tran, which operates most of the county's urban areas and is funded through a sales and use tax.

Clark and Multnomah counties are joined by only two public bridges, the Interstate Bridge carrying I-5 and the Glenn Jackson Bridge carrying I-205. The possible replacement of the Interstate 5 bridge has been a major political issue in both Clark County and Portland for more than a decade.
