Astoria Bridge sadness

Very sad to report that a man jumped to his death yesterday from the bridge. Of course the police investigation required it to be closed down at the 'rush hour'. Here is the link for North Coast Oregon report.

Here are some (wiki) facts about the bridge:

The Astoria-Megler Bridge is a continuous truss bridge that spans the mouth of the Columbia River between Astoria, Oregon and Point Ellice near Megler, Washington, in the United States. The span was the last segment of U.S. Route 101 between Olympia, Washington and Los Angeles, California. It is the longest continuous truss bridge in North America.
