Thanks to @Charles Hansen for sending me the article below. When I was a kid, my folks used to take us on all kinds of summer vacations and adventures on the west side of the state that required riding the ferry. And with summer on the way, you may be planning your own vacation involving a ferry across Puget Sound.

If things had gone as planned though, that wouldn’t have been an option today- because there were plans in place at one point to replace the ferries with a series of bridges that would cross Puget Sound!

Crazy?? Well, it doesn’t seem like the most feasible option by today’s standards. This article lays out the whole plan to only use ferries as a temporary measure and includes a 1965 map of the proposed cross-sound bridges.
