The Lacey V. Murrow Memorial Bridge is one of the Interstate 90 floating bridges that carries the eastbound lanes of Interstate 90 across Lake Washington from Seattle to Mercer Island, Washington. Westbound traffic is carried by the Homer M. Hadley Memorial Bridge running parallel to it. The Lacey V. Murrow Memorial Bridge is the second-longest floating bridge on Earth at 6,620 ft (2,020 m), whereas the longest is the Governor Albert D. Rosellini Bridge—Evergreen Point just a few miles to the north on the same lake, opened 76 years later. The third-longest is the Hood Canal Bridge, also in Washington State, about 30 miles (48 km) to the northwest of the Evergreen Point Floating Bridge.

  • The Lacey V. Murrow Memorial Bridge is one of the Interstate 90 floating bridges that carries the eastbound lanes of Interstate 90 across Lake Washington from Seattle to Mercer Island, Washington. Westbound traffic is carried by the Homer M. Hadley Memorial Bridge running parallel to it. The Lacey V. Murrow Memorial Bridge is the second-longest floating bridge on Earth at 6,620 ft (2,020 m), whereas the longest is the Governor Albert D. Rosellini Bridge—Evergreen Point just a few miles to the north on the same lake, opened 76 years later. The third-longest is the Hood Canal Bridge, also in Washington State, about 30 miles (48 km) to the northwest of the Evergreen Point Floating Bridge. Along with the east portals of the Mount Baker Ridge Tunnel, the bridge is an official City of Seattle landmark. While the bridge originally had an opening span at the center of the bridge to allow a horizontal opening of 202 feet (62 m) for major waterborne traffic, the only boat passages currently are elevated fixed spans at the termini with 29 feet (8.8 m) of vertical clearance.

  • Die Lacey V. Murrow Memorial Bridge, ursprünglich Lake Washington Floating Bridge oder Mercer Island Bridge, ist eine Schwimmbrücke im US-Bundesstaat Washington. Sie wird von der ostwärts führenden Richtungsfahrbahn des Interstate 90 zur Querung des Lake Washington zwischen Seattle und Mercer Island genutzt, die Richtungsfahrbahn für den Verkehr nach Westen benutzen die nördlich parallel zur Lacey V. Murrow Memorial Bridge verlaufende Homer M. Hadley Memorial Bridge. Die Lacey V. Murrow Memorial Bridge ist nach Lacey V. Murrow, dem ehemaligen Leiter der Straßenbauamtes von Washington benannt und war mit einer Länge von 2019 Metern bei der Eröffnung 1940 die längste Schwimmbrücke der Welt. Sie wurde erst 1963 durch die einige Kilometer nördlich gelegene 2310 Meter lange Governor Albert D. Rosellini Bridge—Evergreen Point übertroffen. Gemeinsam mit den östlichen Portalen der Mount Baker Ridge Tunnel ist die Lacey V. Murrow Memorial Bridge ein offizielles Denkmal der Stadt Seattle und ein Nationales Baudenkmal des Amerikanischen Verbandes der Bauingenieure ASCE. (de)
