The New Tacoma Narrows Bridge was dedicated on July 15, 2007

Five years ago today, the new Tacoma Narrows Bridge was dedicated. On July 15, 2007, nearly 50,000 - 60,000 people came to celebrate new bridge.
The new bridge was built parallel to and south of the older bridge, which in turn replaced the original Tacoma Narrows Bridge, the famous "Galloping Gertie" built in 1940 and collapsed in a windstorm a few months later. (HistoryLink.org)
