Maureen R. Elenga

Maureen Elenga, architectural historian and author of Seattle Architecture, speaks this afternoon about the history of Seattle bridges, the subject of her new book, Bridges of Seattle (Arcadia).  Nine bridges included in this book are listed in the National Register of Historic Places. They include the José Rizal Bridge (Washington’s oldest steel arch bridge) and all four of the Lake Washington Ship Canal bascule bridges). The city’s Department of Transportation maintains over 250 vehicular and pedestrian bridges, and this account of some of the more historically significant among them is a worthy addition to books about the city’s history.
