Trip to Deception Pass Bridge

The Deception Pass Bridge is a two-lane bridge on Washington State Route 20 connecting Whidbey Island to Fidalgo Island. The bridge is a commonly photographed landmark of the Puget Sound region.

The bridge, one of the scenic wonders of the Pacific Northwest, is actually two spans, one over Canoe Pass to the north, and another over Deception Pass to the south. Construction began in August 1934, and the completed bridge was dedicated at noon on July 31, 1935. The cost of the construction was $482,000, it cost more to paint the spans in 1983 than to build them in 1935. They were painted again in 1997.

In 1982, the bridge was listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

We are going to car pool to go see the bridge, please let us know if you need a ride or how many people you can take if you are driving. We will be meeting at the Northgate P&R parking lot.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
