MOUNT VERNON — Officials told Skagit County commissioners Tuesday a new project would put the trusses 18 feet above the roadway. Current trusses are just 15 feet, 6 inches at the fog line. Assistant project engineer Polly Brooks says that’s the lowest in the state.
The Skagit Valley Herald reports federal money will pay for the $3 million project. The work this fall will follow the construction of a permanent replacement for the section that collapsed May 23.
