Re: neat urban planning stuff

That's a nice bridge they plan on building. It seems like we can only build something in this country when there is an emergency situation. This leads me to think that we won't start replacing bridges until they all start to fail and more people die. Maybe not then either.

Re: neat urban planning stuff

I'd exercise extreme caution when crossing any bridges until they are replaced. Especially the Brooklyn Bridge. Try holding your breath, it helps keep the tunnels from collapsing, so it should help keep bridges standing.

Re: neat urban planning stuff

The Brooklyn Bridge underwent extensive repairs in the 80s for its 100th anniversary, and is actually scheduled to go through another four-year maintenance program starting this year.

How does one exercise caution while driving over a bridge anyway? Drive really slow in case it suddenly falls apart and you're lucky enough to only be on the precipice? The best thing you can do for your safety is actually go Lou Dobbs-crazy for increased infrastructure funding.
