BURLINGTON -Interstate 5 at the Skagit River bridge is scheduled for nightly closures this week as work continues to improve the bridge.
Southbound traffic will be detoured through Burlington from 9 p.m. Monday, Oct. 14, to 5 a.m. Tuesday. A northbound lane also could be closed overnight, according to the state Department of Transportation.
On Tuesday and Wednesday nights, northbound traffic will be detoured through Burlington, and a southbound lane might be closed.
Southbound traffic again will be detoured Thursday and Friday nights.
Retrofit work on the bridge is scheduled to last through mid-November with various closures, according to the DOT. The fixes come after a section of the bridge was struck by an oversized truck and collapsed into the river May 23.
