Some of those bridges listed as deficient aren't just big bridges, but even simple ones on main arteries. I was reading up on a Kane County project about rehabbing a section of Kirk Road from Cherry Lane (by Elfstrom Stadium), up to 38, which has 2 spans of bridges, one over a couple of businesses, then one over the UP west line. It's amazing how much damage these structures suffer from wear/tear and environmental. They had a whole presentation with every crack detailed.

damn RIP. sounds like the bridge may have been in bad shape though

Quote:
Antonio Brencich, an engineer and associate professor of reinforced concrete constructions at the University of Genoa, expressed concern about the bridge's safety back in 2016.

In an interview released with La Repubblica after the Morandi Bridge collapsed, he said the bridge was "constantly undergoing maintenance."

"It was affected by serious corrosion problems related to the technology that Morandi himself had patented, which he had not used anymore, and which proved to be disastrous."

Terrible. R.I.P. to the innocent people who were killed because the government didn't want to do a bridge project.

The roads, bridges, electrical grid, and other infrastructure in this country are in poor shape. Let's hope we don't see something like this or worse anytime here.

I was just talking about this with someone this morning. The infrastructure in this country is a joke and I'm surprised we don't see more incidents like this bridge collapse here in this country.

We have millions of people in our prison system just sitting in rooms doing nothing costing taxpayers on average about 60K a year that could be put to work to build it up.

I thought hard labor wasn't allowed in our prison system? Maybe it should be? Get things done. And maybe deter people from committing crimes as they will have to work when in prison? hmmmmm



ya, will never work.

I bet some would be very happy to be out during the day/night and contributing to society.


But this discussion is probably better off in another thread.

Youíd we surprised.

I heard about this program through Lance Armstrongís pod cast earlier in their year. Quite amazing. Last I heard. It has a 100 percent successful placement with inmates never returning to prison.

One of the big platforms ran on, improving our crumbling and outdated infrastructure. So far he hasnít done shit about it, which isnít all too surprising.

Also, most prison workers do already work, doing menial jobs. Hard to do work release programs to repair bridges...there has to be some skill level to build them...itís not like digging ditches on a chain gang
