The Deception Pass Bridge and Canoe Pass Bridge connect Whidbey Island to the rest of Washington state via State Route 20. These bridges provide the only land access on and off the island. Crews last gave these bridges a fresh coat of paint more than 20 years ago. The years of wind, sun and saltwater exposure have worn down paint and corroded some areas of the bridges. This project repaired those damaged areas and will preserve the integrity of these historic structures for the 18,000 people who drive over them each day and the millions who visit the area each year.
What to expect
Construction for this project is complete, travelers should not expect to see any construction-related delays.
The iconic bridges along State Route 20 make up part of Deception Pass State Park, the most visited state park in Washington.
