MOUNT VERNON, Wash. —

The Washington Transportation Department says it has changed the detour routes around the collapsed Skagit River bridge in Mount Vernon.

There are three options northbound and two options southbound.

Transportation officials say drivers can expect delays in both directions. About 71,000 vehicles use that stretch of highway every day. The bridge is about 60 miles north of Seattle and 40 miles south of the Canada border.

Officials are urging drivers to avoid the area if possible. But if you must go, check the Department of Transportation website for up-to-date information.
