Seattle's historic South Park Drawbridge between the South Park neighborhood on the south end and the Georgetown neighborhood and the city of Tukwilla on the north end, carried approximately 20,000 vehicles a day across the Duwamish Waterway. The bridge was completed in 1931 and had long been recognized as unsafe by the state. Despite the bridge being a vital link for the community, money was not budgeted for repair or replacement of the bridge and it was closed (by leaving it open) on the 30th of June, 2010. South Park is an ethnically diverse neighborhood of moderate means surrounded by industrial areas. On the north shore of the Duwamish is one of the original Boeing plants. The area has suffered heavy air, soil, and water pollution.
