Deception Pass and Canoe Pass Bridges – Oak Harbor WA

Description

“In 1929, the state legislature authorized the construction of a bridge across the narrow scenic but dangerous waterway between Whidbey and Fidalgo Islands, but there were no funds to proceed. In 1934, the Public Works Administration authorized a grant and manpower from the Civilian Conservation Corps. The two bridge spans were built in a year at a cost of $482,000.”
