PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Weeks before its official opening, TriMet unleased a spectacular fireworks display over the Tilikum Crossing bridge Saturday night.

The bridge — the first new bridge over the Willamette in more than 40 years — will be a transit and bike bridge used as the Orange Line when it opens September 12.

Despite the skies over Portland being filled by smoke from Oregon wildfires, the fireworks lit up the sky and brought thousands downtown.
