If only they could have tied a rope around it to hold it up off the ground...

/too soon?

We need to fix our crumbling infrastructure. But don't you dare think about raising my taxes to do it. I'm thinking slave labor from immigrants.

Looks like that structural asphalt failed. They should have plastered some load-bearing posters on the sides.

/Seriously that thing doesn't exactly look like it was meant to stand the test of time.

Well we have them just sitting around in summer camps playing games and eating all day, the lazy shiftless good for nothing takers.

If it's meant to be collapsed, let it be collapsed. Baby, just let it be collapsed.

The huge highway bridge that connects Panama City to Oanama City Beach, and Carrie's highway 98 traffic over the Bay, is also called Hutchinson.  I clicked on this thinking it must have collapsed, which felt plausible as they are doing work on it.

We may need to clarify the headline.

The Duke Brothers don't need no stinkin' bridges. All they need is a crack in the road they can hit just before the bridge. Once air-born, the General has the suspension of a Sherman tank, which is to say no suspension at all, so there's nothing to break when they land. Except the road. They make and maintain their own cracks in the roads.

Looks more like a road built over a culvert than an actual bridge.  Would have to see it from another angle to be sure.

Personally, I'm more interested in the cracks associated with Daisy Duke...

Weatherkiss: Infrastructure weak.


If the Republicans hadn't given $2 trillion in taxcuts to the super rich and other Trumpers, they would be able to direct a trillion of that towards Infrastructure (vital) and leave the other trillions for the Demon-Rats to spend while being harrassed day and night for spending it.

The Sell-Out of America is ancient history. Fake news. Nothing more to see here, except that giant flaming crater full of lava. Donald was a little pisher when the real Great Right Wing Conspiracy came into force in the 1970s.

The Donald is still a tiny orange mushroom, and a very toxic hallucinogenic.

And it looks freshly paved. The new top was probably too much.

This about 15 miles from my house, just outside of Tallahassee.  Sadly, a lot of our roads and bridges are in bad shape.  We've also noticed that the County has pretty much stopped mowing the sides of the rural roads and doesn't even have minor offenders picking up trash on the roads anymore.  I wonder where my $3k in annual property taxes goes?  And home construction is booming here.

Asphalt over steel, although to me it looks like the culvert failed. Structure #504034, with an average daily usage of a whole 117 vehicles with a detour of 6 miles.  Hardly a priority.

Couple of shims, some "Duct" tape. Be good as new.

If it was in Alaska they'd try to build a $398 million bridge.

Whew!  Glad to know they have BOTH bases covered.

A bridge between Georgia and Florida collapses.

Florida: OMG! How can this happen? This is terrible!

QUINCY, Fla. - The bridge on Hutchinson Ferry Road just inside Gadsden County Florida has collapsed, the Decatur County Sheriff's office reported on Wednesday morning.

So... dont tread on it?

The problem is that they keep crying about needing money for things like this--but always seem to have plenty of money for the things people would never vote for.  Or the perennial game here of bond issues that include a year of operating costs in the bond.
 
2019-08-21 05:20:02 PM  
Is this a federal road or a state/county road. I mean, to post on this site requires that everything be Trumps fault. but I'd be curious as to who has to foot the bill here.
