    I was born and raised in Pittsburgh and we have hundreds of bridges in the area. Our “3 Sisters” bridges are magnificent!

    Just a month before the silver bridge collapse the I35 bridge opened and also stood for 39 years before it's collapse in August 2007 due also to defective design and bad maintenance. The last time the silver bridge was inspected was in 1950 with the inspector standing on the shoreline checking for defects using binoculars

    My superstitious grandpa witnessed the bridge collapse. Said he would have been on it when it fell had it not been for a bone-chilling dream he had the night before about a giant bat with red eyes landing on his window sill and filling him with a bizarre, preternatural dread of cold, deep water.

    another fascinating bridge story is the one in Vancouver, BC, Canada. The Second Narrows Bridge collapsed during construction killing many workers. It is now known as the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge. RIP.

    There was nothing wrong with this bridge. Not a single thing. It simply committed suicide when it realized it was in Ohio.
