Just before the close of the in-water work period, construction crews removed the final sections of the work bridge last week, exposing a stunning view.
With the materials from the work bridge completely gone, the shapely arches of the Whilamut Passage Bridge complement the natural beauty of the rippling river. The new bridge design offers an entirely different view of the river, unobstructed by piers, a departure from the profile of the previous Interstate 5 bridge.

Be sure to take a peek next time you’re in the area. Some of my favorite viewing spots are from the Knickerbocker Bridge and, further to the east, the South Bank Path.
