Proctor Street Bridge

The bridge is just a couple of blocks from home. It was built in 1927, then rebuilt in 2006. The roadway is wide and the deck is high above the trail below it. Seven thousand cars and trucks cross it daily. Tacoma's shoreline is cut by deep gullies. As the city grew Tacoma bridged these gullies with arched spans of concrete. The area is rich with aggregate stone pushed to the water by glaciers, which made concrete the material to use.
