Temporary I-5 bridge is complete
Speed of construction is unimpressive
“I can’t imagine this being done any faster,” says Don Wick of the Economic Development Association of Skagit County. [“Less than month after collapse, temporary I-5 bridge is finished,” NW Wednesday, June 19.]Well, Mr. Wick, 50-plus years ago, we army engineers built Bailey bridges overnight, using nothing but hand labor. That included all the design and foundation work. Of course, we didn’t have federal and state regulations in those days.
