The 2010 Rose Festival Fleet Week ends today, which means another Raising and Lowering of the Bridges.
From 5:30am until 11am today, Monday June 7, the Burnside, Steel, and Broadway bridges will be opening up periodically to let the ships from the United States Navy and Coast Guard, and the Canadian Maritime Forces depart our fair city.
The departure schedule, via OregonLive:
- 5:30 a.m.: USS Sampson
- 6 a.m.: USS Bunker Hill
- 7 a.m.: USCGC Blue Shark
- 9 a.m.: HMCS FFH; USCGC FIR; USCGC Triumph; USCGC Alert
- 11 a.m.: USCGC Henry Blake; USCGC Bluebell

Oddly enough, crossing the Steel Bridge on MAX this morning was significantly less of a hassle than trying to cross it on MAX on Saturday night, where not only did they decide to lift the Steel Bridge at 10pm, they then turned around all Eastbound trains and kicked all the homeward bound Starlight Parade viewers off to find ‘shuttles’ that never showed up.
