This is one of three unique bridge concepts of Homer M. Hadley's (Portland Cement) located in Pierce County. The Purdy Spit and McMillin Bridges are more well known than this particular concrete concept.
This looks like a rigid-frame, which would possibly explain its significance.
In going over the Washington State Inventory of Historic or possibly historic bridges provided earlier, this one was listed on under the recommended by someone category. The order of significance goes from recommended by someone, determined eligible, nominated to the national registry, on the registry.
Someone out there thinks this bridge has potential. Kind of like Hall of Fame discussions let the debate begin.
