The Blue Bridge (officially named the Pioneer Memorial Bridge and opened in 1954) is a four-lane arch-truss bridge connecting Pasco to Kennewick. U.S. 395 crosses the Columbia River via this bridge. The name comes from the blue paint used on the truss superstructure. The bridge was painted green at time of construction (the State color of Washington).

When I was recently traveling around the Tri-Cities, it was hard to miss this Bridge. I crossed it coming into town (from the South) and again when we headed home. The traffic was just find during our crossings.

The Wedding Gayle and I attended was at the Moore Mansion, which is where you see more of the Bridge and unfortunately much less of the Columbia River. Finally, my Brother-In-Law took us on a boat ride and we crossed underneath on the way to Clover Island and the Cable Bridge. It's not a very pretty bridge, but once you see it you'll never forget doing so.
