The Evergreen Point Floating Bridge, now officially the Governor Albert D. Rosellini Bridge—Evergreen Point, is the longest floating bridge on Earth at 7,500 feet (2,300 m). It carries State Route 520 across Lake Washington from Seattle to Medina and is often called the "520 bridge" by locals.
The Evergreen Point of the bridge's original name is the westernmost of the three small Eastside peninsulas that SR-520 crosses. (The other two are Hunts Point and Yarrow Point.) In 1988, it was renamed for Governor Rosellini, who had advocated its construction.
