Description 

"At a surprise announcement during the Monroe Kiwanis Club noon luncheon yesterday (May 22, 1957) it was revelaed that the new Lewis Street Bridge over the Skykomish River, now under construction, will be known as the "Clarence C. Devers Bridge".

The announcement was made by Lee Lewis, chairman of the Kiwanis public affairs committee, upon the basis of information provided by Robert H. Follis via William A. Bugge, state director of highways.

Members of the Kiwanis had previously made the request that the bridge be named after Devers because of his 21 years of outstanding road work with both the Snohomish County Chamber and Kiwanis roads committee.

An appropriate plaque so designating the bridge will be installed at the completion of the structure." (credit: The Monroe Monitor Thursday, May 23, 1957).

This bridge replaced an earlier bridge that was built in 1915, and is the fourth bridge built at this location.
