This bridge is the first major cable stayed bridge to be built in the US. It is so unique that it has become the unofficial symbol of the tri-city area. The bridge was known as the Pasco Kennewick Bridge, the Intercity Bridge, or the Cable Bridge, but was officially named the Ed Hendler Bridge after Hendler passed away in 2001. Hendler was a local insurance agent who was chair of the bridge commission that supervised the bridge project.
