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.

ODAWNA BRIDGE AT NKRUMAH CIRCLE COLLAPSES

The famous Odawna Bridge at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra has collapsed.

This has left road users traveling from Kaneshie, Dansoman and surrounding towns heading for the Nkrumah Circle stranded.

The actual cause of collapse of the bridge is not immediately known. It is however suspected to be as a result of strong water currents hitting the concrete foundations of the bridge especially in this period of heavy rains.

Barely two weeks ago, heavy rains at Accra caused most of the open drainage systems in the City to overflow their banks and cause flooding.

Scores of lives and property running into millions of Ghana cedi were lost to the floods.

Heavy rains which occurred on Sunday also got some parts of Accra flooded again. These include Kwame Nkrumah Circle, Mallam and Kasoa.

Drivers and commuters traveling the stretch are advised to use alternative routes including Graphic Road through Adabraka and the Avenor through the back road behind the Circle Station.

(Wyo)-Lusk Flooded, Hwy 85 Bridge Destroyed, Hwy 20 Closed At State Line

By: John Axtell Posted at: 06/04/2015 09:43 AM

Flash flooding has damaged homes and businesses in Lusk and other communities eastern Wyoming and closed several highways, including U.S. 85, 20 and 18 in the Lusk area and Interstate 90 between Gillette and Buffalo.

        Niobrara County Emergency Management Coordinator James Santistevan says a portion of the Highway 85 bridge over the railroad tracks and the Niobrara River on the north side of Lusk has collapsed.
 
     The river went over its banks in Lusk about 2:30 this morning and flowed down the main street of the town of about 1,500 residents...triggering a flash flood emergency and a number of evacuations.
 
        Santistevan said at mid-morning the water was receding, but that about four city blocks still had water. He couldn't estimate yet the number of homes and businesses that might have been damaged, but said water went into a number of businesses resulting in "a lot of debris, lot of damage.”

        The small community of Manville about 10 miles west of Lusk also had flooding, but Santistevan wasn't sure of the details at that time.
 
         The National Weather Service in Cheyenne has extended a Flash Flood Emergency for Lusk through noon and issued a Flash Flood Warning for all of southeastern Niobrara County, also through noon. 

       The weather service says flood waters are moving down the Niobrara River through Lusk and will continue through the morning...with flooding expected in Van Tassell and other areas.

        The Wyoming Department of Transportation says US Highway 18/20 is closed between Interstate 25 and the Nebraska state line, US 18/85 is closed between Lingle and Mule Creek Junction., and WY 270 is closed between Manville and US 18/85 is closed due to a culvert collapse.

          Motorists are being asked to avoid travel through Niobrara County at this time because detours have not yet been established and won't be until water levels recede and bridge and road inspections can be made. Check www.wyoroad.info for updates. 

         Only one accident and no injuries have been reported as a resulting of the flooding.  Local flooding was also reported last night in parts of Sheridan and downtown Buffalo, where the senior center was damaged.

Mechanical failure causes fire on the bridge which collapsed with the train

Railroad bridge fire and collapse ruled accidental

Published 9:37am Friday, May 29, 2015

INTERNATIONAL FALLS — A fire that caused the collapse of a busy wooden railroad bridge near Minnesota’s northern border has been ruled an accident.

Koochiching County Sheriff Perryn Hedlund said that fire marshals found no evidence of foul play and believe the fire was started by a mechanical failure. He didn’t want to speculate on what went wrong.

A Canadian National Railway engineer spotted the blaze early Wednesday. The collapse blocked a CN line from Prince Rupert, British Columbia, to Chicago. It crosses the border at Ranier, Minnesota, near International Falls. It’s one of the busiest rail crossings on the border.

Railroad spokesman Brent Kossey says CN hopes to restore service in the coming days. In the meantime, it’s rerouting traffic to maintain service to its customers.

Foreign Worker Crushed to Death in Tunnel Collapse

Worker critically wounded at digging site near kibbutz in the Beit She'an Valley, pronounced dead after being freed from the rubble
First Publish: 5/28/2015, 5:14 PM

Tragedy struck a digging site on Thursday afternoon near Reshafim, a kibbutz located near Beit She'an in northern Israel to the south of the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee).

During work at the site an underground tunnel adjacent to Reshafimcollapsed for a reason that is as yet unknown.

As a result of the collapse, a 35-year-old foreign worker who was on site was crushed by the rubble, suffering critical wounds.

He was only disentangled from the collapsed tunnel through the efforts of his friends, as well as firefighting and rescue teams who arrived on the scene.

However, just a short time after being rescued from the rubble, the worker died of his serious wounds, with Magen David Adom (MDA) paramedics having to pronounce the young man's death.

Police have opened an investigation into the circumstances of the incident, with suspicions of negligence leading to the collapse likely to be foremost among the issues needing answering.

SAFETY CONCERNS OVER N332 BRIDGE

2015-05-09 12:48:39

The crack is visible in both directions and the concern is that in recent weeks it seems to be getting gradually worse.

A bridge in Guardamar del Segura, on the approaches to the junction of the CV-91 from Orihuela, with the N332, has developed what appears to be a serious crack in its structure.

According to the municipal group Esquerra Unida which has warned of the apparent danger involved, the infrastructure supports a section of National-332 road which carries thousands of cars andheavy trucks every week.

The crack is visible in both directions and the concern is that in recent weeks it seems to be getting gradually worse. Many residents who have been in contact with the Guardamar Ayuntamiento  say there is a distinct possibility that the bridge could collapse.

The leftist group warns that these cracks began to appear quite a while ago, "but you can see how they have recently become enlarged," according to spokesman Josep Carmona. “The bridge was built on variable terrain across the Rio Segura and the shifting path of the river has created additional problems for the bridge. It is also the point where the dual carriageway into Torrevieja begins.

Carmona also said that this is an area where regular earthquakes occur causing, albeit very slight, movement of the bridge which has added to the structural problems, he would not, however, state that the danger was imminent although he did say that an immediate structural survey should be carried out by engineers from both the Ayuntamiento, which is responsible for the CV 91, and the Highways Agency, who are responsible for the National road.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. —Emergency repairs are now underway on the northbound lanes of the Route 291 bridge over the Missouri River.

The Missouri Department of Transportation shut down part of the bridge Wednesday after engineers spotted significant decay, including holes in the beams.

The state worries that if it’s not repaired, it cold lead to a collapse.

The bridge’s northbound lanes will be closed for about two months.

Bridge collapses over Digaru

- Residents, organisations allege use of inferior quality materials in construction

The bridge that collapsed at Sonapur in Kamrup district on Wednesday. Telegraph picture

Guwahati, May 6: A bridge being constructed on National Highway 37 on the outskirts here collapsed this morning triggering protests by various organisations and the demand for an inquiry into the incident.

Sources said a portion of the RCC bridge, being constructed over the Digaru near Sonapur on the outskirts here, collapsed in three phases - first after midnight, then around 3am and the third part around 6 this morning.

Work on the bridge, being built at a cost of around Rs 1.66 crore, was on for the last eight years. The bridge was to be thrown open to vehicular traffic in September. KMC Limited, Hyderabad, was working on widening and strengthening of the NH 37 from Dharamtul to Sonapur in Assam as part of the East-West Corridor project while RITES Limited, a central government undertaking specialising in the field of transport infrastructure, was supervising the project.

Various organisations alleged that the bridge collapsed because of the use of low quality material putting the role of RITES under the scanner since it was the supervision consultant.

In Assam, RITES has been associated with scores of projects such as pre-construction studies of Bogibeel Bridge in Dibrugarh, detailed engineering studies for Koliabhumura Setu near Tezpur and feasibility and detailed project report for the Naranarayan Setu near Goalpara.

Assam and central government officials associated with infrastructure construction in the state said the collapse apparently reflected "deficiency in supervision".

Senior state government officials said they would not like to comment on the development since it was a National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) project.

NHAI sources, in their guarded reactions, said details have been sought from the site and based on it action will be initiated. "Delhi has been kept in the loop," one of them said. The sources said it was an ongoing project and there was no disruption in traffic or injury to anyone. "Still we will look into all aspects of the collapse," another source said.

A RITES official attributed the collapse to the recent 7.9-magnitude earthquake in Nepal, whose aftershocks also jolted Assam.

Gaza-Egypt tunnels for Palestinians: not to freedom, to die
Gaza-Egypt tunnels for Palestinians: not to freedom, to die

Mohamed al-Najjar, 26, was working in a smuggling tunnel on the border between Egypt and the southern Gaza Strip when the tunnel collapsed.

World Bulletin / News Desk 

A Palestinian youth died Monday when a smuggling tunnel linking the blockaded Gaza Strip to Egypt's Sinai Peninsula collapsed, a Palestinian official has said.

Mohamed al-Najjar, 26, was working in a smuggling tunnel on the border between Egypt and the southern Gaza Strip when the tunnel collapsed, Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qodra said in a statement.

The Egyptian military has recently launched a wide-ranging campaign to destroy the network of underground tunnels linking Gaza to Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.

For years, the tunnels have been used by Gazans to bring basic goods into the enclave, which are otherwise barred by an ongoing Israeli blockade.

A day after a section of an overhead pedestrian bridge collapsed in Kano, Kano State, killing seven people, another section of the bridge crashed this morning, nearly smashing a tricycle operator. 

Eyewitnesses said the operator managed to escape death as the second part of the collapsed pedestrian bridge caved in the early hours of Monday in an area 11 miles from the center of Kano, the capital of Kano State.

A day before, the first part of the pedestrian bridge had toppled, killing seven people. 

Several eyewitnesses told our correspondent that the second part of the bridge buckled and tumbled down this morning just as the tricycle driver was passing underneath. Our correspondent visited the site and saw the tricycle, which was broken in half. Eyewitnesses told him the tricycle’s operator was able to escape alive, even though he was injured. 

The bridge was under construction in the densely populated Dorayi Quarters along Bayero University Kano (BUK) Road in the Kumbotso local government area of Kano State. 

In an interview, Musa Magaji Majia, an assistant superintendent of police with the Kano State police command, confirmed this morning’s incident. 

The police had earlier confirmed that a major part of the pedestrian bridge collapsed on Sunday and killed seven persons at Dorayi Quarters, a busy section in Kano metropolis.

In yesterday’s incident, a section of the bridge, which was still under construction, collapsed on a taxicab. Mr. Majia said on Sunday night that the incident occurred while the workers of the bridge were at the site.

According to him, the construction workers had warned motorists not to pass underneath the bridge since it was still under construction, adding that the driver of the taxi ignored the warning.

The police spokesman said yesterday’s collapse of the bridge claimed seven lives. He disclosed that the police had commenced investigation into the cause of the incident.
