EVERETT --  Getting around in downtown Everett just got more difficult, and will soon get worse.

The 102-year-old Broadway Bridge that spans over railroad tracks now has more weight restrictions.  Most cars and bigger personal vehicles will still be able to pass, but many commercial vehicles will have to use a detour (see the picture above).

This fall the whole bridge will be replaced, meaning everyone will have to use the detour.
