February 5, 2013 · Updated 3:08 PM
Drivers leaving Whidbey Island on the north end should anticipate minor daytime delays this week on Highway 20 at the Berentson bridges over the Swinomish Channel between Anacortes and Burlington.
Beginning Monday, Feb. 4 until Thursday, Feb. 7, crews from the Washington State Department of Transportation will close one lane of the highway for biannual bridge inspections.
Crews will use two days to inspect each bridge:
• Wednesday, Feb. 6 and Thursday, Feb.7, crews will close the right lane of the westbound bridge from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The work must be done during the day to ensure a thorough inspection.
