Tacoma Narrows Bridge

Tacoma Narrows Bridge
Connecting the Kitsap Peninsula with the city of Tacoma, Washington state, USA. Looking south. Its predecessor is notorious as the suspension bridge that flew apart in a high wind, back in 1940, due to inadequate damping for certain resonances. The bridge was rebuilt in 1950, using the foundations of the original but otherwise new. A second, parallel bridge opened in 2008. It now carries southbound traffic, while northbound traffic uses the original. We're on the new bridge here, which also includes a bike/foot path. The 1950 bridge is to the left; it has the towers containing three crosspieces.
