Seattle's floating bridge

At more than a mile long, the Evergreen Point Bridge, which crosses Seattle’s Lake Washington, is the world’s longest floating bridge, according to a recent CNN article.

The Evergreen Point Floating Bridge, which is part of State Route 520, is 7,580 feet long. It rests on 33 pontoons that connect Seattle with its eastern suburbs of Bellevue and Kirkland.

The article notes that Washington is home to four of the five largest floating bridges in the world.
