Permament bridge span moves into place this weekend

Metro, KGMI News Reporting

BURLINGTON, Wash. – The span that will permanently replace the temporary span on the Interstate 5 Skagit River bridge will be installed this weekend.

The bridge will be closed in both directions from 7:00 p.m. Saturday night  to 7:00 a.m. Sunday with a detour in place.

Crews will also be working to increase the overhead clearance along the entire length of the bridge, meaning motorists will be subject to more detours over the next couple of months.
