03/10/08: The Museum of Flight Installs New Architectural Landmark: Unique new aviation-inspired pedestrian bridge opens in October
SEATTLE, Oct. 2, 2008-The Museum of Flight’s visually-striking pedestrian bridge spanning East Marginal Way is near completion and is expected to be open to the public on Oct. 20, 2008. The T. Evans Wyckoff Memorial Bridge will connect the Museum’s main campus on the east side of East Marginal Way to its west campus, which includes the Library and Archives Building, Airpark and parking lots. It was designed to adapt to the Museum’s future west side development. The project began over three years ago, and from the beginning it was meant to not only enhance visitors’ safety and convenience while crossing a busy thoroughfare, but to delight them with an experience inspired by flight.
