The bridges of Washington State range from soaring suspension spans to utilitarian trusses, from technological wonders to spectacular failures. Featuring over 200 maps, illustrations, and black & white photographs, this volume serves as a comprehensive history of the state's historically significant highway bridges. It begins with an introduction to basic bridge design, and a brief history of the state's bridges and its early bridge engineers. Then bridges are presented by region, with text describing construction methods, design innovation, geographic context, and preservation.
