    This is also known as the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. In 1940, less than a year after its opening, twisted violently on a windy day and collapsed. The rebuilt bridge runs from Tacoma over to Gig Harbor. There is a separate bridge that comes back over to Tacoma. The bridge back is a toll bridge and when we crossed it was $6 for our car. You can find video of the collapse on Utube. The first picture I'd of the rebuilt bridge that collapsed, the 2nd is on the way back with Mt. Ranier in the background.Read more
