Traffic is once again flowing over Washington state’s Skagit River as a temporary span has been set in place on the Interstate 5 bridge that suffered a partial collapse last month.
According to our sister site Better Roads , the Washington State Department of Transportation reopened the bridge with restrictions. Vehicles traveling across are limited to a speed of 40 mph and semi trucks or trucks carrying oversized or overweight loads are still being rerouted around the bridge completely.
You can watch a time lapse video below of the temporary span being put into place.

 WSDOT has announced they will use the temporary span until a permanent solution can be set in place, hopefully by early this fall.: http://www.betterroads.com/washington-governor-announces-i-5-bridge-replacement-plan/
