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.

Son dies in LIRR tunnel collapse despite father's efforts to save him

Father frantically tried to revive son with CPR

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.

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.

Multimillion under-construction bridge over Sunkoshi collapses

Sunkoshi bridge collapses


Parts of the 256 meter long bridge over the Sunkoshi River in Okhaldhunge district collapsed on Monday evening

Around 86 meters of the bridge that linked Okhaldhunga and Udayapur collapsed last midnight.

The reason behind the bridge collapse is yet to be known.

Though the government had allocated funds for the bridge construction a decade ago, the construction works started only last year due to bureaucratic hassles.

"We are surprised why the bridge collapsed," said Ramhari Khatiwada, lawmaker from Okhaldhunga-2.  

A team of experts led by Deputy Director General at the Department of Road is visiting the site to find out the reasons behind the bridge collapse," said Khatiwada. The government is yet to make an assessment of the loss.

Licking County bridge collapses after rain, brutal weather

The Columbus Dispatch  •  Saturday April 5, 2014 5:15 AM

Nearly an inch of rain on Thursday conspired with a harsh winter to cause a Licking County bridge to collapse.

The bridge, on York Road south of Morse Road, was reported to be failing by a motorist about 9 p.m. Thursday.

“He was driving north, listening to the Blue Jackets game, when he saw the left side of the road caved in,” said Licking County Engineer Bill Lozier. “He stopped, put his flashers on and called 911. He did the right thing. I don’t know who he is, but he’s my hero.”

A metal culvert 28 feet wide, 150 feet long and 12 feet high passes under York Road, allowing a large tributary of Moots Run to flow through. Lozier thinks the earthen backfill that surrounds the culvert beneath the road slipped, like an avalanche, causing the culvert to buckle and the road above it to collapse.

The collapse continued through the night. By morning, virtually the entire road was falling.

“It just continued to go,” Lozier said. “I could hear the bolts in the metal popping.”

The bridge — which was rated a 3, or serious, on a scale of 0 to 9 per National Bridge Inspection Standards — had been inspected three weeks ago.

“It didn’t look any different than it had looked for years of inspections,” Lozier said.

A full load-rating report on the bridge had been done by an outside consultant on April 12, 2012. The report determined that the bridge’s load didn’t need to be reduced.

The bridge, which carries 588 cars per day, according to a recent county traffic count, had been scheduled to be replaced in 2019 using Ohio Department of Transportation funds.

After its collapse, however, ODOT quickly began looking at ways to replace it faster, possibly moving it to a priority project in the $120 million bridge-replacement program announced by ODOT last year.

If that’s done, work could begin as early as this summer and be completed by the end of the year. The bridge, which was built in 1981, will remain closed until then.

Lozier said estimated replacement costs exceed $650,000.

“That’s my entire bridge budget right there,” he said. “I’m pretty gratified about how they’re pitching in and making my priority their priority.”

Nearly a quarter of Licking County’s 428 bridges have been deemed structurally deficient. Lozier earlier this year announced a five-year plan to replace 102 bridges.

Eight bridges are closed in Licking County, and 47 others are load-reduced.

Other Ohio counties face similar problems. Fred Pausch, the executive director of the County Engineers Association of Ohio, said a handful of bridges collapse every year.

“We’ve got 5,700 bridges that are structurally deficient or functionally obsolete,” he said. “ This is going to happen more and more if we don’t start putting some money into infrastructure.”& amp; amp; amp; amp; amp; lt; /p>

After the York Road collapse, Lozier and his staff checked some other county bridges most susceptible to moisture and closed one, on Colling Road in Madison Township in a remote part of eastern Licking County. That bridge had already been reduced to one lane.

According to the National Weather Service, 0.92 inch of rain fell in Newark on Thursday, with an additional 0.32 inch between 3 and 4 a.m. The next chance for significant rain is Monday, with a possibility of thunderstorms and a half-inch to an inch of rain.

Rail Tunnel Construction Collapses Trapping 12 Workers

Apr 02, 2014 01:05 AM EDT |

Hao Ren


Twelve construction workers digging up a tunnel for a high-speed railway near Changchun, capital of Jilin province, were trapped when the work site collapsed on Wednesday morning.

The incident was announced by the Jilin government on its Weibo microblog.

The workers were working on the Xiapanling No. 1 tunnel in Yanbian, a key portion of the 359-kilometer railway near the border with North Korea.

Local emergency teams have been dispatched to rescue the trapped workers.

Emergency command centers were also being set up in Jilin, according to provincial party chief Wang Rulin who arrived at the command center.

Police, firefighters and medical teams are now in the area to render assistance and dig out the twelve workers.

The Jilin-Hunchun train line is a major development project for Jilin under the 12th Five Year Plan (2011-2015), and is part of three major railway projects aimed at bringing North Korea closer into China's economic hub in its northeast region.

The trains for the Jilin-Hunchun will have speeds of 250 kilometer per hour (155 mph), through nine stations.

The entire project costs 41.6 Billion yuan or US$6.71 Billion and is expected to be completed and operational before 2014 ends.

Bridge collapse kills 5 in Japan

TOKYO: Five workers died Sunday and two more are missing after a bridge collapsed during construction work on a remote rocky atoll, the Japanese coastguard said.

The Okinotori atoll, also known as Douglas Reef, lies 1,700 kilometres (1,060 mi-les) south of Tokyo and is the southernmost point of Japan’s territory.

It is disputed by China, which says that the islands are just a collection of rocks and should not be included in Japan’s 200-nautical-mile exclusive economic zone.

The workers were reinforcing the islands’ shore protection when the bridge fell down in the early hours of Saturday, public broadcaster NHK reported.

A local coastguard official said 16 workers had been at the site and nine were confirmed safe, adding that no further details of how the accident occurred were immediately available. — AFP -

Landmark Local Bridge Collapses MCLENNAN COUNTY (March 25, 2014) The landmark Eichelberger Crossing Bridge across the North Bosque River just north of Waco collapsed overnight, evidently as the result of debris that backed up after weekend rains and shifted the foundation. The McLennan County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the collapse Tuesday morning. The turn-of-the century bridge was built at the site of a river crossing settled by the Eichelberger family in the early 1850s. Descendants of the original settlers include former McLennan County District Attorney Martin Eichelberger, who died in 1977, and pro golfer Dave Eichelberger. The bridge was abandoned in 1987 according to online records, but was used by walkers and fishermen.

Nine Dead, 30 Injured in Vietnam Bridge Collapse
Nine Dead, 30 Injured in Vietnam Bridge Collapse
TEHRAN (FNA)- At least nine people are dead and 30 injured after a bridge collapsed in Northern Vietnam early Monday, officials said.

A group of around 40 people were on their way to a burial at a cemetery in Lao Cai province, bordering China, when the suspension bridge they were crossing collapsed, said Hoang Hiep, deputy chairman of the National Committee for Traffic Safety, Voice of Russia reported.

Ten people are in critical condition.

The bridge was built a year ago, Hiep said.

It had a capacity of only 1.5 tons and probably collapsed because of the high number of people crossing it, said district chairman Hoang Tho Trung.

Families of the deceased will receive 7 million dong (340 dollars) and families of those injured will receive 2 million dong, local newspapers reported.

Portions of bridge on trial run collapses, 2 engineers suspended

JAIPUR: Portions of a railway over-bridge, situated in Gangapur in Sawai Madhopur district that was to be unveiled by the state government, collapsed on Wednesday when it was opened for a while for trial run. Two engineers including a project manager of Rajasthan Rajya Sadak Vikas Nigam Limited were suspended and an enquiry into the matter was ordered.

Though no loss of life was reported, the incident has again put a question mark on the working of the PWD and officials are concerned.

On Wednesday early morning, some of the vehicle drivers, who were to pass on from the bridge, witnessed heavy wreckage on both side slopes of the bridge and locals informed the officials concerned about the incident.

According to the police, the portions of both the sidewalls coming on slopes tumbled down. Traffic on the bridge was stopped immediately. Police said they were yet to register any case and are waiting for an official complaint into the matter.

The traffic on the railway over-bridge began on Tuesday evening as a trial run because the bridge was supposed to be unveiled by the state government within a fortnight. "We were only waiting for the final consent of the minister concerned for the official inauguration of the bridge," said an official.

BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — A wall of rain-sodden earth collapsed into an illegal, open-air gold mining pit in southwestern Colombia on Friday, killing five miners and injuring 12, authorities said.

Red Cross spokesman Cesur Uruena in Bogota said heavy rains were impeding attempts to land helicopters in the municipality of Santa Barbara de Iscuande in Narino state to evacuate the injured. He put the death toll at five.

"This is completely illegal mining," said the Narino security chief Jaime Rodriguez, adding that Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia guerrillas were active in the area.
