New floating bridge opens in Seattle; I-90 stretches from coast to coast


On September 12, 1993, the rebuilt Lacey V. Murrow Bridge over Lake Washington opens in Seattle. The new bridge, which was actually the eastbound lanes of Interstate 90 (the westbound lanes cross the lake on a separate bridge), connects the city and its eastern suburbs. It replaced the original Murrow Bridge, the first floating concrete bridge in the world, which was destroyed by a flood in November 1990.

Bringing us one of the best places in the world to watch the Blue Angel show in August. I didn't learn this until last year but you can ride your bike out to the center of the bridge and watch the show.
