South Park Bridge (Part 1 of 2)

The South Park Bridge was first put to work in 1931 and continued to work until June 30th, 2010. The citizens of South Park held a funeral on the evening of the closure. The City of Seattle owns and maintains the bridge and had stated on several occasions that it did not have any intention to build a replacement even though it is a critical bridge to the neighborhood. The bridge links the South Park community across the Duwamish River to South Seattle, next to Boeing Field International (BFI). Since the closure, politicians have been campaigning for funding for a replacement bridge.

A replacement will cost ~$100,000,000. Demolition has not begun yet, but they will be demolishing the areas around it to make way for the equipment to be used for the process.
