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 the northwest side of Pass Island on the west side of the bridge. View looks up toward the half-completed span across the waters of Canoe Pass, 180' below, and Fidalgo Island beyond. This photo shows the south half of the span, being built from Pass Island, and the north half of the span, being built from Fidalgo Island, about to touch in the middle. That span, when completed, would measure 450' long with a main span of 350'.
