Thousands of people walk on the road deck during the grand opening of the new Tacoma Narrows bridge Sunday in Tacoma, Wash. The mile-long bridge is the longest suspension span to open in the United States in more than 40 years. The new bridge, which is scheduled to open to traffic early today, is built parallel and to the south of the span built in 1950.
