Tacoma Narrows Bridge Location

The location of where the original bridge was built on July, 1940 which ultimately collapsed 4 months later on November, 1940 after finally giving way to 40 MPH (64.37 km/h) winds. Construction of the bridge had taken 1 year & 7 months to build, which resulted in making it the third-longest suspension bridge in the world at the time.

10 years later in 1950, the bridge was finally re-built with more lanes. However overtime, the bridge – that still stands today – started to see an increase in traffic flow, therefore resulting in a replica being built in 2007, running parallel to the reconstructed structure.
