The iconic Deception Pass Bridge in Washington
Deception Pass Bridge is located in the U.S. state of Washington. It’s a two-lane bridge linking Whidbey Island and Fidalgo in Deception Pass State Park. It’s one of the most spectacular bridges in the world.
Combined, the two spans are 1,486 feet in length; 180 feet above the water. The road over the bridge is Washington State Route 20. If the drive over this foggy strait in the Puget Sound isn't particularly scary to you, try walking over the narrow pedestrian lane at the edge of the bridge. That's where you'll find especially hair-raising views of the rushing water directly below. Over 1,500 tons of steel were used to construct the two spans. Roughly 15,000 cars cross the bridge each day.
