I5 Bridge Washington

Washington State announced yesterday that they expect the bridge on I5 at Burlington Washington to reopen sometime next week. There will be two temporary spans in each direction while the original bridge is being repaired.
For those of you who missed it, this bridge collapsed on May 23rd after a supporting beam was struck by an oversized truck. While a few cars went in the water there were no fatalities but some injuries. In the meantime there have been detours around the bridge but the delays have been lengthly.This is an older bridge built in the 50's and carries all four lanes. I have noticed that the newer bridges on interstates tend to be two separate spans, one in each direction. This certainly makes for more flexibility if one span is damaged or needs maintenance. Thought that those of you heading north on I5 towards Vancouver B.C. or south returning home would like to know.
