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.

Teesta bridge threatened

Part of protection dyke collapses

The newly constructed 750-metre Road bridge over the Teesta river in Lalmonirhat Sadar upazila is at risk of damage as a large portion of its protection dyke collapsed in the last three days due to strong currents in the trans-boundary river.
Suruz Miah, executive engineer of the Roads and Highways Department in Lalmonirhat, said they were working to ensure protection of the Tk 111 crore Road bridge, opened to the public in September 2012, as it was now under “high threat”.
Locals have blamed the use of substandard materials for the collapse of the protection dyke of the bridge that has linked Lalmonirhat and Kurigram with the southern part of the country. The construction firm, however, has denied it.
Suruz told The Daily Star that they were dumping concrete blocks in the vulnerable points to stop further collapse as well as protect the bridge.
Locals said a heavy flow of water from the upstream was creating strong currents in the river in this rainy season and it caused the damage to around 100 metres of the 300-metre dyke.
They alleged that the construction firm -- Amin-Delim Construction Firm -- had used substandard materials in building concrete blocks. These blocks and poor quality geotextiles were used to construct the dyke on the bank of the river.  
“We, the local people, strongly protested when the construction firm used low quality materials in 2012. But the roads and highways authorities didn't pay heed to the matter due to unknown reasons,” alleged Mahidul Islam, a local.

The construction of the 750 metres long and 12.11 metres wide Teesta Road bridge began on September 7, 2006 and was completed in the first week of September in 2012. Around Tk 111 crore was spent to build the main bridge, approach road and the protection dyke.
The protection dyke was built at the same time. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina opened the Teesta Road bridge to the public on September 20, 2012.
Anwar Hossain, a sub-assistant engineer of the Roads and Highways Department, said reserved concrete blocks were being dumped in the vulnerable spots. “These blocks had been manufactured by the construction firm for using during the crisis period.”
But both officials of the Roads and Highways Department declined to make comments over the allegations of using substandard materials in building the protection dyke.
Shafiqul Islam, an engineer of the construction firm, told this correspondent on Saturday night that they had constructed the bridge maintaining all rules and regulations and used “proper quality products”.
The dyke might have collapsed due to strong currents in the river and it is not unusual, he said, adding that they had built these blocks as reserve to deal with this type of problem.

Final death toll of collapsed Brazil overpass is 2

A truck is trapped underneath a collapsed bridge in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, Thursday, July 3, 2014. The overpass under construction collapsed Thursday in the Brazilian World Cup host city. The incident took place on a main avenue, the expansion of which was part of the World Cup infrastructure plan but, like most urban mobility projects related to the Cup, was not finished on time for the event. (AP Photo/Victor R. Caivano)

SAO PAULO (AP) - Brazilian officials say rescue workers have recovered the body of a 25-year-old man crushed beneath tons of concrete and steel of an unfinished overpass that collapsed in the World Cup host city of Belo Horizonte.

A City Hall press officer says that rescuers recovered the body early Friday, hours after the small car was flattened by the collapse. No one else was in the car.

He says the final death toll is two. Officials say they had already assumed at least one person had died in the car. Twenty-two people suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

The press officer spoke on condition of anonymity, citing internal regulations.

The collapse has been an embarrassment for the country, which has been basking in praise for what has mostly been a smoothly running soccer tournament.
