That's an old bridge... hope the link works.

First, Minneapolis, now Washington.

More like Waters Under Troubled Bridge.

It's bridge under troubled waters now.

How does the bridge to that song go?

I don't think anyone is hurt

Ridiculous R10. The fall alone would have killed them.

Then add the speed, steel and concrete....

Here's the link, since R9 decided to pointlessly comment on it, but not direct us to the live video.

A bridge collapses in D.C and it't not on CNN? It didn't happen.

by Anonymousreply 1405/23/2013

false flag. also, weather machine caused a weakening of the bridge.

Is that the main bridge which takes you towards Snoqualmie Falls and on to Spokane?

by Anonymousreply 1605/23/2013

It has begun.

It's about 60 miles north of Seattle.

by Anonymousreply 1805/23/2013

The bridge isn't very high over the river and the river doesn't appear to be very deep (the cars aren't even submerged), so R10 is NOT being ridiculous.

We don't need no stinkin' infrastructure!

Death by a thousand budget cuts....

Bellingham is now cut off from the USA. Will they demand Canada annex them?

by Anonymousreply 2205/24/2013

So... there was this bill in Congress, supported by Democrats and the President, which would have fixed this bridge (and hundreds, even thousands of others) before they collapsed -- far cheaper than a rush to replace a collapsed bridge -- and in the process would have created millions of jobs, and reduced the unemployment rate by at least one full percentage. And it was completely paid for (it wouldn't have increased the deficit a dime).

The Republicans filibustered and killed it. The House won't even vote on it.

I hope they get the bodies out ASAP or this could really mess up the morning commute.

No seriously. I am r 10. No one seems to be hurt. Lol at 22 who knows us oh so well

Mt. Vernon (the site of the bridge) is Glenn Beck's hometown.

OMG! I drove over that bridge in 1999! That could have been me!

by Anonymousreply 2705/24/2013

I've ridden across that bridge, and I have friends who cross that bridge regularly.

The fucking Republicans & Congress are playing with our lives and the lives of our friends and family... all to spite Obama and to give more money to the ultra-wealthy.

Vote those fucking treasonous assholes out in 2014!

by Anonymousreply 2805/24/2013

Hopefully, the new bridge will include a nice caftan around its bottom.

Obesity is no joke. Lose weight people, you're collapsing the infrastructure.

Mount Vernon is also Jim Caviezel's home town.

The 1-5 bridge is an insatiable bottom.

by Anonymousreply 3305/24/2013

It would be nice to see people, our President especially, call out the politicians who blocked the bill to fix this bridge. It would be nice to see Obama get angry and put up a real fight against these assholes. Of course that won't happen. Nothing will happen. Everyone will forget and move on, as always.

Is this why George fell out of the car?

Or it will be like Benghazi, the Republicans who voted against funding for increased embassy security are yelling the loudest about why the embassy wasn't protected. Our ineffectual president will sit around with his thumb up his butt and let them get their licks in.

by Anonymousreply 3905/24/2013

Even though I fully blame Republicans for cutting and blocking infrastructure repair spending that is vitally necessary... the fact that this bridge collapsed when an over-sized truck rammed into it, and that it wasn't on the list of bridges to be fixed means it'll be difficult to hang this around GOP necks like I so desperately want to.

by Anonymousreply 4005/24/2013

R23 nailed it!


by Anonymousreply 4105/24/2013

Democrats should be bringing up the infrastructure and jobs bills all weekend long.

by Anonymousreply 4205/24/2013

When I read about this at 5am this morning, Ichecked Google Maps and found the map had already been updated to show the discontinuity on the Interstate.

by Anonymousreply 4305/24/2013

Unfortunately we can't blame this one on the Repukes..but the truck driver with the oversized load and the trucking company will be put out of business over this.

by Anonymousreply 4405/24/2013

It's collapse is complete, it will never be president.

Isn't this what our gasoline taxes are supposed to pay for?

What are they spending all that money on?

by Anonymousreply 4705/24/2013

Gasoline taxes don't keep bridges standing when their support beams are hit by a truck carrying an oversized load, R47.

But we have to build bridges in Iraq! And Afghanistan!

by Anonymousreply 4905/24/2013

Since Republicans think they can blame all of Bush's failures on Obama, along with a whole lot of other things that Obama has had nothing to do with... I think I'll continue to just loudly blame this on Republicans in Congress.

Turn-about is fair play, right?

Not far anymore, r8.
