Previously there had been some concern about the DOT's plan to relieve the traffic congestion between North Whidbey Island and the mainland. The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) was considering several options:

  1. Widen the Deception Pass & Canoe Pass Bridges.
  2. Build a new bridge parallel to the Deception Pass and Canoe Pass Bridges.
  3. Build a new bridge from North Whidbey to Camano Island.
  4. Build a new bridge from North Whidbey to mainland near La Conner, via Goat Island.

Plans for new construction were cut short by Tim Eyman's I-695.
