This literally cracks me up! How is State Route 77 a Portland destination? I mean, Casco Bay Bridge is cool. I do love seeing it up, but it's a bridge :)

The Casco Bay bridge is a beautiful new bridge. It has a nice smooth surface with well-marked lanes. It curves over the Fore River and gives you views of the mudflats leading up and down the river to Portland Harbor, but also of the petroleum...More

With a waaaay better than average view. Only bad thing is when the draw bridge is up and you’re in a hurry.

I use this bridge almost daily and even when a boat is passing through it usually takes no longer than 30minutes. Other than that it's a great bridge to take a picture of the waterfront of Portland from. Not a tourist attraction but a photographer...More

Not really sure why this has a profile on Trip Advisor. It's a fine bridge that crosses the port. It's a draw bridge for large ships to pass, but we didn't get the see it up. It isn't especially pretty or anything.

We used this bridge several times during our stay, and were surprised one day to see that it is an opening bridge to allow boat traffic through.

We crossed the bridge twice but honestly didn't see anything special. Nice, reasonably efficient but the harbor had a typical bad smell.

We took the Casco Bay Bridge over to Cape Elizabeth to see a few lighthouses. Cape Elizabeth is a gorgeous town! The houses were so beautiful!

Combine a fear of drowning & a fear of heights and you have the perfect combination here. But it's worth it! The Casco Bay entrance roads from Portland are a beautiful way to check out the waterbirds on the beaches of the bay. Beautiful. And...More
