Seedy Underbelly

This is the underside of the western edge of the Evergreen Point Floating Bridge. From this angle, it looks very well built. The structure didn't really vibrate or sway even as heavy traffic passed above.

Nonetheless, the bridge is likely to fall apart in either an earthquake (shear stress breaking hollow pillars) or in a winter storm (unmooring the pontoons). Tolling will soon begin to pay for its replacement.
