Tacoma’s Murray Morgan Bridge Rededication Ceremony – February 15

murray morgan bridge

Our friends and colleagues in Tacoma are celebrating the reopening of the historic Murray Morgan Bridge on Friday, February 15 at 10 am. The event is open to the public. Meet at 11th and A St in downtown Tacoma. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the bridge. The newly rehabilitated bridge is a preservation success story.

Read all about the preservation efforts on Historic Tacoma’s website. The bridge was listed on the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation’s Most Endangered Properties List in 2008–the structure was closed by WSDOT in 2007 due to structural issues. A coalition of partners and advocates worked together to save the bridge and successfully found funding to rehabilitate the Tacoma Register and National Register listed structure.
