If they would stop hanging snitches from it, this wouldn't have happened.

I don't know that the US has a lot to brag about here.

Don't forget the I35 bridge collapse in MN and the recent one in Florida of a brand new bridge.

We have no shortage of maintenance and engineering F ups in the US also.

Oof. Hope her background isn't civil engineering. Not a good look.

That's the funny thing, 70 year lifespan infrastructure sounds impressive... in 1960.

The actual beam broke? Looks like it had a pair of steel beams on concrete support structures.

Anyone know the exact coordinates?

We do. Our bridges, in particular, are in terrible shape. A 2018 study found over 54,000 bridges across the country to be "structurally deficient".

I hold my breath every time I cross the Jimmie Davis Bridge. DOTD had allocated $100 million for repair to existing bridge and an additional new bridge. But as usual the state legislature had other ideas and now that money is earmarked for the I-49/I-220 connector project, which will be a debacle because it goes through the “historic” neighborhoods of Allendale, Cooper Road, etc.

quote:

Last month, House Bill 578 designated $100 million to the I-49 connector project. The money was allocated from $700 million in settlement money collected from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon Gulf oil spill. The bill originally had the $100 million earmarked for the Jimmie Davis Bridge, but Senators Barrow Peacock, John Milkovich added an amendment. “Remove the addition of two lanes for the Jimmie Davis Bridge and the repair of the existing bridge from the list of projects and replace it with I-49 inner-city connector in Caddo Parish,” reads the amendment to HB 578.


quote:

The Jimmie Davis Bridge has structural issues, needs new pavement and aged bolts need to be replaced. Although the bridge is functionally obsolete and about 25,500 cars drive over it per day, at least one appointed official said it isn't considered dangerous. “I don’t want to paint the picture that the bridge is going to fall because if it was an unsafe bridge we’d close it," said Shawn Wilson, Secretary of the Department of Transportation and Development.
