From Portland Afoot
Interstate 205 is the large highway ring that loops off Interstate 5 east around most of Vancouver and Portland, providing a detour for freight traffic and other long-distance travelers. It crosses the Columbia River with the Glenn Jackson Bridge. Thanks to the activism of a short-lived, largely Clark County-based bicycle advocacy group, the Glenn Jackson Bridge has a multi-use path down its center.
The completion of Interstate 205 was largely responsible for the explosive growth of East Vancouver in the 1980s and 1990s.
