Caption Deception Pass Bridge construction
Description View of Deception Pass Bridge construction under the direction of Lacey V. Murrow, director of the State Highway Department, and O. L. Elwell, bridge engineer. This view, taken from a bluff atop the north side of Whidbey Island, is west of the bridge and offers a good look at both bridges at this time. View looks northeast toward the half-completed span across the waters of Deception Pass, 180' below, and Fidalgo Island beyond. This photo shows the south half of the span, being built from Whidbey Island, and the north half of the span, being built from Pass Island, about to touch in the middle. That span, when completed, would measure 900' long with a main span of 550'. Image also shows the span already completed over Canoe Pass.
