It would take between 35-40 minutes, depending on where in McMinnville. A bad part of this commute is getting over the bridge. If it is during commute times, that could add a lot to the commute time, as there is always a bottleneck. It is also a nightmare to get over the bridge if there is any kind of accident, or if a person is threatening to jump (when that happened, it took 8 hours to get from downtown Salem to west Salem!
). Lots of horror stories that night! For years, we've heard that they would be building another bridge, but nothing yet.
