Bridge Collapse a Dire Warning


RR040219 BridgeCollapseApril 2, 2019 – A 2018 report from TRIP indicated that roads and bridges that are deteriorated, congested or lack some desirable safety features cost Tennessee motorists a total of $6 billion statewide annually. Now they almost cost a motorist his life. One person was injured after a concrete railing section fell from a bridge in Chattanooga, Tenn., this week shutting down two interstate ramps at one of the busiest intersections in the country. The bridge collapse took place at the I-75 North and I-24 West split, according to Chattanooga police. The railing from I-75 fell onto the I-24 ramp, according to the Tennessee Department of Transportation. What is it going to take? People dying to get the attention of our legislators?
