Website: https: //www.portlandoregon.gov/bts/article/419529

Notes: Code for Portland contacted Rick about an ios developer member helping to update - still in -progress on this. Contact us if you're interested @CodeforPortland

Realtime Bridge Status

Description: Get a feed of scheduled raising/lowering of the various bridges. And as well, a way to directly query the current state of each bridge. The service would include enough info so (for example) if a particular bridge is in the UP position, the data would reveal why. A dataset like this would support traffic routing apps and informational apps for people caught in traffic waiting for a bridge to be lowered.
