NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – An overweight on a bridge that couldn’t handle it proved a disaster overnight in Washington state.
It collapsed, sending three cars into the water. Fortunately, no one died.
But it’s a reminder that there are thousands of bridges just like it, where if one piece falls, the whole bridge does.
Construction attorney Barry Lepatner called attention to this in his book “Too Big To Fall: America’s Failing Infrastructure And The Forward.”
