MOUNT VERNON — Traffic on the Interstate 5 Skagit River bridge at Mount Vernon will be restricted Saturday morning while the Transportation Department gives the temporary span a checkup.

The department says crews will tighten bolts, inspect the asphalt and look for anything needing repair on the span that allowed the bridge to reopen June 19.

A section of the bridge collapsed into the river May 23 when it was hit by a truck with an oversize load.
