Bridge safety

with 3 comments

I’m sure everyone has heard about the bridge collapse in Minnesota a few days ago.  Tragic is all I can say about that.  I’ve never been a fan of bridges and I have to cross one twice a day over the Hudson River to get to and from work.  This morning I thought I should do some research to see if I could find out the status of the bridges that I have to travel on a daily basis.  This is the first thing I found on one of the bridges that was published in our local paper this Monday, just 1 day before this weeks disaster.

Then I read this article from today.

  3. Hi Kim, thanks for stopping by my blog. I’ve bookmarked you!

    Thankfully I don’t ever have to go over the Menands bridge. That one has always scared me since I was a kid.

    I wrote a post some time back about living in California for 20 years made me afraid to be stuck in traffic under an overpass. Visions of an earthquake and me being crushed by tons of concrete. Yikes!
