Description 

Part of the eastbound US 2 trestle across Ebey Island built in the late-1930s. It was twinned between 1967 and 1968, turning the first few miles of US 2 into a four-lane divided highway. The original US 2 trestle was replaced in two phases, the eastern half being replaced in 1993 and the rest being replaced in 2001.
