Feds look for temporary fix after I-5 collapse



MOUNT VERNON, Wash. — Washington Gov. Jay Inslee says federal officials are searching the country for a possible temporary replacement for a bridge that collapsed along the crucial Interstate 5 corridor.
Inslee spoke at a news conference today, the day after a truck hauling an oversized load of drilling equipment apparently hit an overhead girder on the major route between Seattle and Canada.
Inslee said federal officials are looking for a pre-fabricated structure to replace the 160-foot section that fell into the Skagit River. If one is found, Inslee said a temporary fix could be in place in weeks. If one can’t be quickly secured, the governor it could be months before a replacement can be built.
