BURLINGTON - Drivers going over the Skagit River Bridge on Interstate 5 may face minor delays Saturday morning, Aug. 3, as crews inspect the temporary span opened in June.
This will be the second inspection of the temporary section in a week. Crews checked the bridge the previous weekend after discovering a metal joint had come loose.
Northbound traffic on the bridge will be reduced to one lane from 5:30 to 10 a.m. The lane closure on the southbound side of the bridge will be in effect from 5:30 to 8:30 a.m.
No one was seriously injured when a portion of the bridge fell into the Skagit River on May 23. The state Department of Transportation expects the permanent replacement span to be in place next month.
