geekbikerskum: Wow, this far into the thread and no mention of Storrow Drive in Boston?


Boston is not the center of the universe.

I know... it's hard to come to grips with, but there are low bridges all over the country. Some of them are even in other countries!

styckx: mat catastrophe: styckx: We have a bridge in our city that is hit constantly. There are signs every-farking-where approaching it in bright as fark yellow saying LOW BRIDGE "11'7". Like clock work it gets hit at least 2-3 times a year.. And it's not like it's an optical illusion, the shiat is farking low and for whatever reason 18 wheelers go plowing through and get ripped open.

Would that be this bridge?

Nope..

These Audis were just getting a head start on their future of blatantly ignoring any and all road signage.

Came to see picture of large ship involved in maritime accident.

Left disappointed.

/in my world 'car-carriers' aren't trucks.

The car carrier'll be fine. The Junkions will just slam the pieces back together and he'll be good as new.

Swoop1809: I dont understand why cities see trucks hitting bridges like this all the time but they dont do anything about it beside putting up signs.

We have a low railway bridge like the one in the video posted up thread, but it has two sets of lanes. One is normal, the other had been carved out into a ditch so higher vehicles can still pass under the bridge. How hard is that for a city to do, especially if it would save so much money for everyone involved?


From what I would understand it, it would be immensely difficult. You'd have to move all of the pipes, and thats assuming you could do so without getting a massive bow shape in all the sewer pipes, water lines, gas lines, ect. That is in addition to having to grade the new road smoothly,for hundreds of feet in each direction. THEN deal with drainage issues. You don't want it to turn into a lake after every rainstorm, do you?
