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.

Park district investigating Sleepy Hollow Bridge collapse

Pioneer Press

A concrete and steel pedestrian bridge that spans a creek between Sleepy Hollow and Danny Cuniff parks in Highland Park collapsed during the overnight hours Tuesday, the Park District of Highland Park reported.

Park officials say the exact cause of the collapse is under investigation and engineers have been called in to determine the next course of action.

"The safety of our residents in our parks and facilities is a top priority and we are grateful that no one was on the bridge at the time of the incident," said Liza McElroy, executive director of the Park District of Highland Par, in a news release. "We are working with our engineers and risk management firm to determine the cause of the bridge collapse."

Liz Gogola, the park district's director of communications and marketing, said the park district learned of the collapse after a neighbor notified the city of Highland Park, which in turn notified the park district.




Sleepy Hollow Park is located just north of Half Day Road on the east side of Trail Way. The pedestrian bridge crosses the Skokie River, also known as the east fork of the Chicago River North Branch. Danny Cuniff Park is located north of Sleepy Hollow and is the location of the park district's Centennial Ice Area.

Pedestrians have been advised to use alternate routes while the bridge is closed for repairs.

Report: 3 killed, 13 trapped in mine collapse in Turkey

Nov 17, 2016 The Associated Press

ANKARA, Turkey – A copper mine has collapsed in southeast Turkey on Thursday, killing three workers and trapping 13 others inside, media reports said.

The privately-owned mine near the town of Sirvan, in Siirt province caved in following a landslide in the region, the private NTV television said.

Several ambulances and rescue teams were dispatched to the area and rescuers recovered the bodies of three miners, NTV said.

The miners were working the night shift at the time of the collapse.

In 2014, 301 miners were killed in a fire inside a coal mine in Soma, western Turkey — the nation’s worst mining disaster. The tragedy exposed poor safety standards and superficial government inspections in Turkey’s mines.

ĐỒNG NAI – Four passersby, who fell into the river following the collapse of a suspension bridge on Đồng Nai River in the southern province of Đồng Nai yesterday afternoon, were rescued.

A person was injured and was sent to a medical establishment fortreatment while three others’ health was slightly affected.

A Tân Phú District People’s Committee official said last night local authorities had not received any information about who was still missing.

Tà Lài Bridge, 164m in length, and 4m in width, is the only way for 1,300 ethnic minority residents in Tà Lài Commune to travel to Tân Phú District’s centre and neighbouring communes.

Local authorities’ initial investigation reported that the reason for the collapse was a cable of the bridge’s cable system slipping.

At the site, witness said they saw some cables had slipped from abutment.

Relevant offices and local authorities are jointly investigating the accident.

Soon after the mishap, Tân Phú District authorities arranged a ferry near the area to transport locals.

The bridge was built in 2001 at a cost of VNĐ3.5 billion from Đồng Nai Province’s budget. It officially opened to traffic in 2005, serving walkers and motorbike and bicycle riders.

A Tân Phú District official said the local People’s Committee had upgraded the bridge twice since it opened to traffic.

However, according to director Trịnh Tuấn Liêm, director of the provincial Transport Department, the department sent documents to local authorities advising them to conduct regular inspection on this weak bridge to avoid an accident.

3 workers rescued after being trapped in collapse in Ottawa tunnel; one injured

BY THE CANADIAN PRESS

POSTED NOV 10, 2016 4:54 PM EST

OTTAWA – Three workers trapped in a collapse in a light rail tunnel under construction in Ottawa have been rescued.

Ottawa paramedics spokeswoman Manon Lavergne says one worker suffered a minor hand injury in the incident, which happened Thursday afternoon.

Lavergne says the injured worker was taken to hospital for treatment.

The other two were not injured.

Ottawa city Coun. Mathieu Fleury said at the scene (on Waller Street) near the University of Ottawa that the majority of workers escaped and the three were trapped in a “safe zone.”

The city said on Twitter that a small amount of shotcrete — concrete that is sprayed on a surface — fell in a construction zone within the tunnel, and said the incident was not a “tunnel collapse.”

I killed in collapse of Italy overpass after closure sought

MILAN (AP) — An overpass north of Milan has collapsed under the weight of a truck carrying an oversized load just hours after highway authorities say they requested the road's immediate closure.

The news agency ANSA said one person was killed and at least three injured in the collapse Friday.

Italian television images show the highway overpass split in two as firefighters worked under spotlights to determine if there were more victims. Video showed a red car crushed beneath the truck.

The highway authority said in a statement that it had asked for the overpass to be closed after pieces of concrete had fallen from it Friday, but that provincial officials had requested a formal order before acting.

Italian police say the truck carrying steel coils was marked as bearing an oversized load.
