520 workers note milestone


A team of workers from Kiewit-General-Manson pose Friday in front of the last of 58 anchors to be placed into Lake Washington to hold the new Highway 520 floating bridge. The "fluke anchor" weighs 100 tons and is 35 feet wide. It was lowered to the bottom of the lake to a depth of about 200 feet. A cable will stretch from the anchor's steel truss to the bridge's western-end pontoon, not yet built. A total of 45 fluke anchors and 13 other anchors were built in Kenmore and barged to the job site.
