Inspecting Deception Pass spans

Published February 25, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

Scenes you don’t see often. Three crews worked over the weekend (Feb. 23 and 24) doing pre-project inspections of Deception Pass and Canoe Pass bridges. Photos from Fidalgo Island, North Beach and Whidbey side of the pass. Painting and repairs will take place over a 2-year period. These bridges were constructed in 1935.


About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
