SEATTLE — The first pontoon for the new Highway 520 floating bridge is on its way from Aberdeen to Seattle.

The Transportation Department says the 360-foot-long pontoon was towed out of Grays Harbor Wednesday and should arrive on Lake Washington on Sunday.

It’s one of the largest of 77 pontoons being built for the new bridge.
