(1) Thread #2: Bridge Collapse - Live updates on Florida International University, (FIU) Miami bridge collapse.

Thread #1 (link below) reached 44 tweets on the first day, so it's time to start another.

(2) The above rendering of what the end product would have looked like shows the most obvious of the design flaws: a very wide span relying on overhead suspension cables for load bearing. Engineers apparently thought they could install all 950 tons without the cables.🤔
(3) This project was in the 8th of 9 years to completion. That's about standard for such a project. I think we're going to see that mistakes were made at every level of the process, by multiple institutions. Checks and balances did not work.

Florida has a big problem.
