The state Department of Transportation has installed traffic cameras near the detour points around the collapsed Skagit River Bridge on Interstate 5. The cameras make it possible for drivers to take a look at the current traffic conditions and plan accordingly.

According to DOT, drivers have encountered the biggest delays  – often 20 minutes or more – heading northbound during the peak commute times, but even southbound backups can reach three-quarters of a mile.

More information from the DOT about the bridge collapse can be found on its website.
