... Yes, the bridge on Interstate 5 that collapsed tonight is right here about 4 miles from the House of Rabbits. It crosses the Skagit River right between the cities of Burlington and Mt. Vernon. Everbody here uses that bridge a lot, as does heavy industrial traffic between Seattle and Vancouver, B.C. Rerouting all that over the other three, narrow road bridges in the area will be a zoo for a long time. There is no boat traffic, and fishing season is not on now either. We have many alternate routes and ready access to supplies and services and thankfully it looks like there were no fatalities and very little traffic on the bridge - which was a big surprise since it is almost always quite busy." - RG, Yur Reporter near the Scene.
