Painters coming to Deception Pass

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 Whidbey island. Beginning in 2019, contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) will begin a two year, $22.6 million project to repair, restore and repaint the bridges. WSDOT reports that it was more than 20 years ago that these bridges received a fresh coat of paint. “The years of wind, sun and saltwater exposure have worn down paint and corroded some areas of the bridge. This project will repair those corroded areas and preserve the integrity of these historic structure for the 18,000 people who drive over them each day and the thousands who visit the area each year.”

About Photographer 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.
