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.

A Dozen Men Trapped Underground In Tunnel Collapse

VIETNAM - Rescuers in Vietnam are working desperately against the elements to try and reach about a dozen men trapped underground.

The men were working at a hydro-power plant when a section of the tunnel collapsed just hours ago.

About two-hundred rescuers are working to drill into the rock and try and pump oxygen to those men, but they said heavy rain and winds are really making the rescue process difficult.

Officials said the tunnel is very narrow and that the water level is quickly rising.

However, reports are coming in that they are being able to drain some of the water out through makeshift tubes.

13 killed in tunnel collapse at Chinese-funded power station in Ecuador

PUBLISHED : Monday, 15 December, 2014, 11:30am

Thirteen people were killed and 12 injured in a tunnel collapse at a Chinese-funded hydroelectric power station under construction in the Ecuadoran Amazon.

Three Chinese people and 10 Ecuadorans died in the accident, Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa said on social media.

Ecuador’s public radio reported that the deaths occurred in the engine room at the Coca Codo Sinclair hydroelectric station.

“We’re evaluating what has happened,” Dennis Salgado, the project’s lead control technician, said.

The Chinese-funded plant employs 7,000 workers, 20 per cent of whom are Chinese, along the border of the Amazonian Napo and Sucumbios states.

The injured have been treated at a hospital in the town of El Chaco, according to the radio report.

Coca Codo Sinclair, constructed by the Chinese firm Sinohydro, cost US$2.2 billion and is scheduled to begin operation in February 2016.

It is expected to generate 36 per cent of the energy currently consumed in Ecuador.

The plant is part of a network of eight hydroelectric stations under construction in the oil-rich country, which aims to stop importing electricity and become an exporter of clean energy.

CBC News Posted: Dec 11, 2014 12:21 PM AT Last Updated: Dec 11, 2014 12:21 PM AT

A car ended up in the water after a bridge gave way on Boulter Road in western P.E.I.

A car ended up in the water after a bridge gave way on Boulter Road in western P.E.I.

A car fell into the water after flooding caused a bridge to collapse in Milburn early Thursday morning, say RCMP.

Police responded to the bridge collapse in the western P.E.I. community at approximately 12:20 a.m.

The driver escaped with minor scrapes.

Weather conditions have caused damage to a number of roadways and bridges in the province.

Almost an hour after the Milburn bridge collapse, police responded after a vehicle got stuck in a sink hole that had developed on Route 175 in Tyne Valley. The two occupants of the vehicle were not injured.

RCMP advise motorists to adjust their driving to the conditions and be aware that they may encounter road damage, debris on closed roads and bridges. They also advise drivers to obey any barricades and signage that are in place.

Gilgit Baltistan: Baltistan cut off from the country as part of Alam Bridge collapses

GILGIT: A major portion of the only bridge linking Baltistan region to Gilgit and the rest of the country has partially collapsed, suspending traffic on the route for the second consecutive day on Saturday.
GB Alam bridge collapseThe strategic Alam Bridge sustained damage on Thursday evening when a heavily loaded truck was passing over it. The truck was heading to Rawalpindi from Skardu when it got stuck in the middle of the bridge, leaving the driver and his colleague in a precarious situation.
The two men reportedly jumped off the vehicle to save their lives and made it safely across the bridge. Later, the truck was removed with the help of engineers from the Frontier Works Organization (FWO) which is responsible for the bridge’s maintenance.
“Thankfully, no loss of life occurred,” said a police official on Saturday, adding the bridge was immediately closed for traffic to prevent any mishap.
According to travellers, vehicles heading to Gilgit and other parts of the country from Baltistan were stopped near Alam Bridge and the drivers were told to return or wait for resumption of traffic on the crossing.
“This was bound to happen because the bridge wasn’t fit to cater to the needs of so many areas for such a long time,” said Farman Ali, a resident of Baltistan, which includes Skardu, Ghanche and Shigar among other towns and has a population of over 300,000 people.
“This is the only bridge linking Baltistan to the country and I think it should have been replaced with a reinforced concrete bridge a long time ago,” he added.
The incident has triggered criticism against Gilgit-Baltistan Chief Minister Mehdi Shah’s government which has been accused of mismanagement and corruption in the past.
“The chief minister has disappointed us,” said Baltistan chief of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Fida Nashad. “This strategic bridge should have been replaced with a better one during the government’s five years. But this did not happen,” Nashad said.
An FWO spokesperson in Gilgit told The Express Tribune repair work has begun and traffic would be resumed soon. “Engineers have begun repairing the bridge and we are hopeful it would be fit for traffic within the next 24 hours,” said the spokesman.
Built with a combination of iron rods and wood over Gilgit River, Alam Bridge is one of the longest bridges in G-B measuring about 300 metres in length. In view of its safety, FWO staff is deployed at the bridge to ensure vehicles don’t pass it at dangerous speeds. In addition, trucks and other loaded vehicles weighing more than 20 tonnes are not allowed to pass.

Nigeria: Moro Bridge Collapses Again

Ilorin — The over 100 year-old Moro Bridge in Aiyelabowo/Mandala, a suburb of Ilorin in Asa LGA of Kwara State has again collapsed.

The bridge has collapsed repeatedly in a decade with several appeals to the federal government to carry out major repairs on it.

It would be recalled that the bridge collapsed in February 2014, cutting off eight major markets as well as the Medium Security Prison at Mandala. A minor repair was carried out at the time.

A truck with Lagos registration LSR 692 XB carrying planks crashed on the bridge on Friday night, blocking movement of other vehicles across it. Motorists pleaded with the federal government to repair the bridge to stop the frequent damage.

Four Miners Killed in Nicaragua Mine Collapse

MANAGUA – Four artisanal miners were killed and another survived the collapse of a clandestine gold mine in the western Nicaraguan municipality of Villanueva, the town’s Mayor Juan Gomez confirmed on Tuesday.

The accident occurred Monday night in the Rincon de los Garcia mine, located some 183 kilometers (114 miles) northwest of Managua, Gomez told Efe.

The miners who died were identified as Victor Andrade, 20, Luis Felipe Gomez, 42, Freddy Escorcia, 36, and Einer Lopez, 24.

Local authorities suspect that the collapse was the result of a broken support beam inside a tunnel.

The only survivor, William Martinez, whose age was not stated, was hospitalized in critical condition after escaping from being buried alive, authorities said.

Martinez was initially buried in an additional cave-in while operating a backhoe in an attempt to rescue the other miners, Fire Department chief Javier Amaya said.

This was a clandestine mine, but artisanal miners continued to work it.

A similar disaster occurred last Aug. 28 in northeastern Nicaragua, where 29 small-scale miners were trapped in a mine collapse, of whom two found their own way out, 20 were rescued and seven remain missing.

In that same area of northeast Nicaragua, another artisanal miner died of asphyxiation last Sept. 20 as he was operating a pump inside a tunnel.

2nd bridge collapses at Wake Tech

Posted: Friday, November 14, 2014 9:49 pm

RALEIGH — A second pedestrian bridge under construction at Wake Technical Community College collapsed early Friday morning, less than a day after another bridge under construction at the school also collapsed, killing one worker and injured four others.

No one was hurt in Friday morning's collapse, said Pamela Monastra, senior director of communications for Skanska USA in Atlanta.

Construction workers arriving at the school's northern campus Friday morning discovered the second bridge had fallen, Monastra said. A review of surveillance video showed the collapse occurred between midnight and 12:30 a.m. Friday.

The bridges are similar in design and were at about the same stage of construction, Monastra said.

The names of the victims from Thursday's collapse have not been released.
