Broken Bridge Run

The big news in the Skagit Valley this month is the I-5 bridge over the Skagit River fell in the river one Thursday evening.  It's been a mess ever since, with traffic re-routed through the towns. At least 75 accidents based on the reroute. This is all well reported elsewhere. Fortunately, the powers that be have worked really hard to get a temporary bridge in place, as well as a plan for a permanent fix. The temporary bridge should be operational next week.

On Sunday, I decided to go for a run along the Skagit River, to see if I could get a look at the progress on the replacement "Bailey bridge," as it is called. Here are some pictures I took from that run.
