Driving back from Eastern Washington, back to the, by comparison, sanity and fun of Seattle, when you hit the bridge, you knew you were home free. Ah, relief. Yesterday. when I left Seattle, it was the first day of Seafair, and as is tradition, the Blue Angel Jet Formation Air Force Fighters fly over Lake Washington a number of times,and this must be new as I don't remember it, they close the bridge for 2-3 hrs. This was explained to me as necessary as traffic accidents increase quite a bit from people driving the bridge while watching the planes maneuvering. We were able to safely see the beginning of the show from the plane's windows. And the beautiful bridge, sitting so empty in the water was beautiful too.

This bridge, crossing Lake Washington and connecting Seattle with its eastern suburbs, is an amazing engineering accomplishment. More commonly and simply called the "520 Bridge" or the "Evergeen Point Floating Bridge," it's the longest floating bridge in the world. Builders had to resort to placing the bridge on floating pontoons as Lake Washington is too deep to be able to easily make use of traditional bridge support towers. Not to be missed by anyone who likes bridges or appreciates challenging engineering. The bridge is now more than 50 years old, and was originally built for just $21 million. Interestingly, they are currently building a new 520 floating bridge that will cost billions! The drive across the bridge is nothing spetacular (although the views out across Lake Washington are very pleasant). What makes this bridge special is recognizing and appreciating the engineering that went into building it!

The Evergreen Point Floating Bridge (officially known as the Governor Albert D. Rosellini Bridge—Evergreen Point) carries SR 520 across Lake Washington, linking Seattle with Bellevue, Kirkland, and Redmond and the east. At 7,580 feet, the Evergreen Point Bridge is the longest floating bridge in the world... truly an engineering marvel. The incredible depths of Lake Washington make conventional bridget construction particularily difficult. The original bridge was completed in 1963, at a then-cost of $21 million. A new replacement bridge is currently under construction. Note: the Evergree Point Bridge is currently a toll bridge, with all tolls collected electronically for registered vehicles. Crossing in a non-registered vehicle will result in a "fine" of $15.
