'the council had "been watching" the bridge after a routine condition assessment flagged it as needing a more detailed review by an independent contractor.'


They lucked out. Now, they don't have to waste a lot of money on a consultant to tell them the bridge is farked.

At next week's council meeting they are going to schedule a discussion to consider voting on soliciting contractors to prepare bids for erecting temporary barricades at the collapsed bridge.  The barricades should be up sometime next year.

Looks like that truck barely fit between the rails.  I wonder what its weight capacity was and how much the truck weighed.

"Mr Ferrari was uninjured, but he said his truck suffered at least $1,000 damage when the pylons of the bridge broke"

"I opened the door and had to get on my hands and knees and crawl up the concrete slab because of the angle of the truck."

Then went looking for new pants.

"The bridge had no weight limits, and Ms Love said that would also be reviewed."

I think it's safe to say the current weight limit is approximately 0.

foment: verb - instigate or stir up...

The bridge failed instigating the fall.

/personally I wasn't happy with the word footway, but these types of headlines aren't easy
