Bridge Talks, a series of presentations and discussions held the second Wednesday of each month, takes place at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Lovell Tap Room at the Fort George Brewery. This event is free and open to the public.

The topic this month is “Bridges of the Pacific Coast Highway.” Robert Hadlow, historian for the Oregon Department of Transportation, provides an overview of the bridges between the California and Washington state borders, including the Astoria Bridge.

The Astoria Bridge turns 50 years old this year, and there will be a birthday celebration. For information, email or call 503-325-2203.
