Saw an animation somewhere that showed the final bridge this was only half and it was to be supported from above. Will look again.

probably construction companies fault . you were not deploying a mobile assualt bridge there was no need to build in such a rapid fashion

It will be interesting to see. My father worked on a project as a welder, he told his wife..do not go to that building, it's not right, they did not engineer the roof properly or modified it..something like that, it was a long time ago.
On opening day the roof collapsed..my dad knew it was going to happen.

Florida officials were told "there were no safety concerns" about a crack in a Miami university bridge, hours before it collapsed killing six people. Florida International University said a meeting on Thursday morning involved the engineering and construction companies, as well as Florida's transport department. An engineer told officials it "did not compromise the structural integrity".


What do you mean the bridge is cracked? oh don't worry bout that!

Oh?..bodies not even cold


Back up your tasteless statement.


the probabilitis are high. but mostly it was a joke.


The probabilities are nil.

Not only is it not something to joke about but it was not a joke, period. It was a sick attempt to inject totally unrelated and unjustified political bovine feces into a discussion of serious situation. Please go soak your head in a bucket of water or something to clear your thinking processes.

This seems to be the whole thing in a nutshell. As the guy says, the official review is going to have a lot more material and evidence to review than he does, so there may well be other stuff playing a part, greater detail, and more accurate timelines. But this seems pretty solid to me (IANACE):

It's interesting that the reason for the Minnesota Bridge collapse that killed 13 and injured 145 in 2007, STILL has not been fully determined.

REF: en.wikipedia.org...

Maybe if blame is assigned, some company or government will go broke, due to the lawsuits?

To anyone that has played physics based bridge building simulators, it's quite clear that the wonky support sections on the left of the bridge can in no way carry it without the proper suspension that's supposed to be there (ie the missing mid section of the bridge that wasnt built yet).

No really, to me it's that simple. Maybe I'm just too simple.
