Google Maps had already been updated Friday morning to indicate Thursday’s collapse of the Interstate 5 bridge into the Skagit River in Mount Vernon.

The map shows I-5 missing over the entire river and as far south as Exit 227 and as far north as Exit 229. The actual collapse involved just one section of the bridge on the north side of the river.

The map had not been updated to indicate detour routes around the closed section of I-5.
