It seems like a lot of slip sliding is happening here in the US.  It will be up to the local people to report bridge collapses because I don't think we'll even hear about these unless it's in our own backyard. 

Recall too that President Obama deliberately brought up the Minnesota bridge collapse, and the Zetas (and only the Zetas!) told us why.

Here's the newest infrastructure collapse with a life lost in the LIRR tunnel collapse that happened last night.  Things are really picking up.

Sandhogs work in the LIRR tunnels beneath Grand Central Terminal in January.

A young sandhog was killed Thursday night in the collapse of a railroad tunnel deep under Park Ave., despite his father’s heroic efforts to save him, a source told The Daily News.

The unidentified victim was working on an LIRR tunnel when a portion caved around 7:30 p.m., according to the source, an LIRR employee who spoke on the condition he would not be named.

The young worker’s father, who was working alongside him, frantically tried to revive his son with CPR as workers rushed him through a network of tunnels to a waiting ambulance at E. 48th St. and Park Ave., the source said.

He was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he died, according to the source.

The FDNY could not confirm the collapse and LIRR officials could not be reached immediately for comment.The East Side Access project will connect the LIRR's Main and Port Washington lines in Queens to a new LIRR terminal beneath Grand Central Terminal.

Sandhogs are excavating tunnels about 120 feet beneath Manhattan streets. Work is expected to be completed early next year.

1 in 9 highway bridges in the U.S. are classified as "structurally deficient," requiring significant maintenance, rehabilitation or replacement.  http://t4america.org/

What made Obama chose the 2007 collapse of the Minneapolis bridge on I-35 as his example of infrastructure needing to be repaired? This was of course a dramatic incident, with the bridge flinging to one side and folding in waves against that side. Clearly there was tension, the Mississippi pulling apart at that point. This is also an incident that got a lot of attention on the Internet for a ZetaTalk prediction come true. We had predicted Mississippi bridges ripping during the New Madrid, and this was the first example of this prediction culminating. Curious minds, entering the date and place into search engines, would arrive at the ZetaTalk predictions. Is this Obama's way of leaking the truth? Yes, and just the start of such maneuvers.

Today I posted that a bridge on I-80 at the Tannersville exit in the Poconos collapsed.  This is an area that has been pulling apart with many gas explosions just recently.

Back in Feb.2011, Parts of Ludford Bridge in Ludlow have fallen in to the River Teme.  As we will be starting to see bridges collapse I thought it best to start a blog with this heading.  I'm sure I will be adding to this as time evolves.  

I've added the proper ZT message regarding the safety of our bridges.  Not only in the US, but worldwide, with severe twisting , crunching, and shaking that the earth is now subjected to on a daily basis  due to a daily worldwide wobble and caused by the ever approaching Planet X, we'll see more bridges crumble and fall.

High Waters Cause Concrete Bridge To Collapse

Neighbors who live near Jerrica Leigh Lane in Powell County say heavy rain caused the water level of a creek to rise several feet causing a concrete bridge collapse.

Officials say the water level of the nearby creek rose quickly, approximately six to seven feet in a very short amount of time early Monday morning.

Other damage was just down the road where, emergency officials say, several feet of the black top of a road was ripped away due to rushing waters.

Some who live nearby say they haven't seen this kind of rain in a very long time and, while they saw road crews blocking off roads for safety reasons, they're still concerned about the damage future storms could cause.

"There was a rock quarry that's just behind the hill back there where they used to blast, and makes you wonder if maybe one day everything will wash away," said Elizabeth Toler.

No one was hurt.

Patna, Aug 30
The Basghatta bridge was built by the Bihar State Bridge Construction Corporation over the Bagmati river in Muzaffarpur at a cost of Rs. 25 crore.

The bridge was expected to be inaugurated next month. 

State road construction minister Rajeev Ranjan Singh said action will be taken against those found guilty.

"We have ordered an inquiry by a top official into it and will take action after submission of the report," Singh told mediapersons here.

Local residents said that rampant corruption and poor quality material used in the construction of the bridge led to its collapse.

Eleven injured in Odisha bridge collapse

Odisha Sun Times Bureau
Banki/Athgarh, Aug 28:

Eleven labourers including an engineer were injured, two of them seriously, after a portion of an under-construction bridge over river Mahanadi connecting Banki and Subarnapur, caved in at Jatamundia in Odisha’s Cuttack district on Wednesday night.

Bridge collapseThe two seriously injured labourers -Akshaya Pradhan and Chikun Sahu – who were rushed to Athgarh sub divisional hospital, were later shifted to SCB Medical College and Hospital at Cuttack, reports said.

The condition of both is critical, sources in the SCB Hospital said.

According to reports, the construction work of the bridge was underway when four slabs, connecting two spans of the bridge, suddenly collapsed.

The incident took place between 7.30 PM and 8 PM.

The 10 injured labourers have been identified as Damodar Behera, Abhinna Behera, Niranjan Lenka, Baikuntha Saha, Bharat Behera, Akshaya Pradhan, Chikun Sahu, Arun Behera, Prasanna Behera and Pravakar Singh.

The supervising egineer Anil Tripathy was also injured in the mishap, the reports said.

A fire brigade team from Athgarh was rushed to join the rescue work to trace out other labourers, who are feared to have fallen into the river after the bridge collapsed.

The team was facing difficulty in tracing out the missing labourers due to the strong current of the river, the reports added.

Earlier on June 17, 2013, one portion of the bridge had collapsed. However, no one was injured then.

It may be mentioned that the state government had awarded the construction work of the 2.070 km bridge to M/s Rajlaxmi Constructions Ltd at a cost of Rs 54.70 crore.

The company had started its work on January 10, 2008 and was supposed to complete the construction work in 36 months. However, as the company failed to stick to the deadline, the cost of the bridge construction was later revised to Rs 62.49 crore.

The deadline has been revised four times and the company was scheduled to complete the work by June this year, sources said.

Tasha 2 Bridge Collapses After Heavy Downpour in Abuja

A portion of the Tasha 2 bridge in the Gwagwa area of Abuja collapsed on Friday following a downpour which started at about 4 a.m. and continued into the afternoon, flooding many roads. Some residents of the territory attributed the flooding of the roads to the lack of drainage systems in some parts of the city. The flooding prevented free flow of traffic, leading to traffic congestion.
At the Tasha 2 Bridge in Gwagwa, a portion of the bridge collapsed and two cars could not move on the bridge simultaneously.
The bridge was in good condition on Thursday and that the heavy rain increased the water level, which could have caused the collapse of the bridge.

One Dead, 23 Rescued after Footbridge Collapses

Rescuers worked for several hours to assist the stranded people across the river.

(MOUNT HOOD NATIONAL FOREST ) - A thunderstorm with heavy rain led to a flash flood of the Sandy River at Ramona Falls Tuesday afternoon washed out a footbridge that claimed the life of one man, and left 23 others to be rescued.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office received a 9-1-1 call just before 3:00 p.m. about the bridge collapse, and that one person may have fallen into the water. Members of the Clackamas County Water Rescue Team responded with Search and Rescue Deputies and U.S. Forest Service personnel.

However, due to the remote area where the bridge collapsed, the witness who called 9-1-1 had to hike over a mile to get to their vehicle, and then drive several miles before they could get cell phone service to call for help, police said.

Several teams of rescuers were sent to the washed out bridge location, while others searched the river bank down stream. When rescuers arrived at Ramona Falls, they found several people on the other side of the river and unable to cross due to the high water. There was no sign of the male who was on the bridge when it collapsed, and fell into the water.

Rescuers later discovered a male body in the river over a mile down stream of Ramona Falls. The male was deceased, and identified as the 35-year-old male who had been on the bridge when it washed out.

Rescuers worked for several hours to assist the stranded people across the river. Using two rapid deployment crafts, which are small rafts designed for swift water rescue, they ferried people across. 23 people along with their gear were ferried across uninjured.

Police added that the thunderstorm caused heavy rains which raised the river level several feet in a short amount of time, and is to blame for washing out the bridge.
