“structurally deficient” bridge drops concrete on car below

yup.

it’s official.  bridges in minnesota are falling down.

the latest news – the maryland avenue bridge over i35-e, a bridge rated as “structurally deficient” (just like the i35-w bridge that fell last year) dropped “pieces of concrete” on 2 cars below yesterday.  the piece of concrete, estimated to be 6 feet by 9 feet, and 1 inch thick, weighing 1,200 pounds.  thankfully no one was injured this time. 

cb and i were at the area just after it happened, traffic got snarled and we diverted off the freeway and went over the maryland avenue bridge.  without any knowledge of what was happening below.  talk about freaky.

boy i love mn-dot.
