“What's to see?”
Reviewed 2 October 2012

I drive this bridge regularly and really haven't noticed anything of interest. It's a nice bridge in that it gets me from downtown to the west side.

“a nice view of the Olympic mountains”
Reviewed 14 May 2012

A little background for people visiting. The bridge is the main way to get to the Westside and has been replaced several times over the years. The last time was when the 2000 earthquake sank it like the Titanic. No one was hurt and we got a new bridge out of the deal. It has a nice place to look out over the water toward the Olympic mountains and it looks nice lit up at night. Otherwise, it's a bridge.

“See salmon, sea lions, heron, jelly fish, all from the bridge.”
Reviewed 23 March 2012

The city has volunteers, during migration season, who can answer questions and help you identify what you are seeing. They are very helpful and it is a fun stop, even for a few minutes.
