Connecting the Magnolia neighborhood with Queen Anne and the rest of Seattle across the long, narrow canyon now occupied by Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway's Interbay Yard, the Magnolia Bridge is notable due to the views it has of downtown Seattle (on a clear day this includes Mt. Rainier) and the new cruise ship terminal just south of the bridge.

The bridge features an intersection about halfway through it, which can lead to somewhat congested conditions.

There is a butterfly shaped sculpture that hangs over the east end of the bridge, and a small memorial attached to the railing on the west end of the walkway.

There is no walkway on the north side of the bridge, so sidewalks that lead there simply end at the end of the bridge. If you plan to walk on the bridge, cross to the south side of the street before you get to the bridge, as traffic moves fast, and the curves at the west end are quite blind.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
