If you know the name Murray Morgan Bridge, then you have passed the test. You are a real Tacoman.
If you don't, then shame on you. Shame!
Murray Morgan Bridge is the proper name of what some people call the 11th Street Bridge or City Waterway Bridge. It's that old steel bridge over the Thea Foss Waterway downtown. Yeah, the one that has been shut down since 2007. The one that has spent the better part of this last year under a big white tarp. The one that got tens of thousands of wire stolen from it in 2009.
And it's going to reopen later this year. With a new pedestrian path. And a bike path. And an elevator connecting it to Dock Street.
Who was Murray Morgan? He was a Tacoma historian, author and columnist. He passed away in 2000.
This is not your grandmama's bridge. This bridge is bitchin'.
