Around 7pm on May 23, 2013, part of the bridge on Interstate 5 between Burlington and Mount Vernon, Washington collapsed (amazingly with no fatalities). Saturday night they closed the bridge to install the new permanent bridge, here’s a shot taken around 2am. Lucky for me, the fog set in pretty early and stayed the entire night providing some great (kinda sorta eerie) photos.
