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.
