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.

Martin County firefighters hurt in bridge collapse

WARFIELD, Ky. (WYMT) - Two Martin County firefighters believe they are lucky to be alive after the fire truck they were riding in fell through a bridge and into a creek.

Members of the Warfield Volunteer Fire Department responded to a house fire early Monday morning in the Pilgrim community, about 10 miles south of Warfield.

Rhonda Estepp and Gregory Alley were riding in the department's main fire engine when they tried to cross a bridge on Blackburn Cemetery Road.

"The next thing I know, the cab of the engine is tilting up into the air," Alley said. "It's a little blurry after that. I mostly remember red lights, hill side and then water rushing into the cab of the engine."

The bridge collapsed, sending the fire truck into the creek below.

Alley, the driver, helped Estepp escape while he remained trapped with the water rising rapidly.

"I was thinking about getting my partner out," Alley said Monday afternoon, fighting back tears. "That was the only thing I was thinking about."

Estepp, also emotional and shaken after the incident, said, "I was thinking about my daughter and my son. I had just gotten off the phone with my daughter not 30 minutes prior. It just broke my heart that she may not get to talk to me again."

Both firefighters made it out with the help of other first responders.

Since firefighters were not able to make it across the bridge, they could not extinguish the flames at the house. However, the house was abandoned and nobody was hurt by the fire.

Alley suffered a torn rotator cuff, while Estepp had several torn muscles.

"Bruised everywhere, beaten everywhere," Estepp said. "I feel like I've been in a drier on tumble."

Doctors expect both firefighters to make full recoveries after physical therapy.

Alley and Estepp have known each other for more than 20 years, they said.

Fire officials said the truck cannot be repaired.

The loss of the truck, combined with the loss of equipment in the collapse, is setting the department back around $300 thousand.

Warfield firefighters said they'll have to rely on departments in nearby Inez and Kermit, West Virginia, for help until they can figure out how to replace what they lost.

Tourists rescued after Utah bridge collapses, plunging vehicle into river

Published: Sunday, Sept. 28 2014 3:56 p.m. MDT

Updated: 39 minutes ago

Sussana Dursi and Roberto Bellocci, both vacationing from Italy, were returning to their campsite at Kodachrome Basin State Park Saturday night when they crossed the bridge that spans the Paria River. The ground beneath the road where the bridge and the road meet suddenly gave way. That sent the car plunging into the river. The ground under the black top had been eroded away due to heavy flooding. The car was tossed and pummeled approximately 150 yards down stream where it finally came to a stop upside down in the middle of the river.

Garfield Sheriff's Office

HENRIEVILLE, Garfield County — Two Italian tourists were saved in a dramatic rescue in southern Utah on Saturday after their car plunged into the Paria River.

Sussana Dursi, 47, and Roberto Bellocci, 62, were driving back to their campsite at Kodachrome Basin State Park about 9 p.m., and had just finished crossing the bridge that spans the Paria River when the blacktop collapsed under the flood-eroded ground and their car plunged into the river, according to the Garfield County Sheriff's Office.

The car was carried 150 yards in the river before stopping upside down in the middle of the water. Duri and Bellocci were able to climb out of their vehicle through the broken back window, according to the sheriff's office, and climb on top of the vehicle.

A short time later, a vehicle driven by the daughter of Garfield County sheriff's deputy Clint Pearson drove by and saw the gaping hole where the bridge had collapsed. She called her father who went out to assess the damage.

"As he exited his vehicle he heard faint cries for help over the noise of the rushing water. With his spotlight he was able to locate the position of the couple," the sheriff's office said in a news release.

The county's search and rescue swift water team was called, along with deputies from Garfield County and Kane County.

Dursi and Bellocci both suffered "extreme hypothermia" and were taken to Garfield Memorial Hospital.

Denmark bridge collapse blocks motorway

28/09 17:42 CET

Denmark’s main route running north from Copenhagen, the Helsingør motorway, was blocked in both direction after a bridge, which had only just been built, collapsed on Saturday night.

One engineering expert, Christos Georgakis from the Technical University of Denmark, described it as unacceptable, saying such a mishap should not happen in a country like Denmark.

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.
