The Hood Canal Bridge (officially William A. Bugge Bridge) is a floating bridge located in the U.S. state of Washington that carries Washington State Route 104 across Hood Canal and connects the Olympic and Kitsap Peninsulas.

 

At 7,869 feet (2,398 m) long, (floating portion 6,521 feet (1,988 m)) it is the longest floating bridge in the world located in a saltwater tidal basin, and the third longest floating bridge overall.

 

First opened in 1961, it was the second concrete floating bridge constructed in Washington. Since that time, it has become a vital link for local residents, freight haulers, commuters, and recreational travelers.

 

The convenience it provides has had a major impact on economic development, especially in eastern Jefferson County.

 

The bridge is officially named after the director of the Department of Highways, William A. Bugge (1900–1992), from 1949 to 1963 who was a leader in the planning and construction of the bridge.

 

The bridge, however, has continued to be popularly known as the Hood Canal Bridge.
