Anyone hear about the 495 Bridge closing: apparently, poor foundation, bridge is shifting.

We had the Mianus bridge collapse where a section of the highway dropped and people lost their lives.

WTF!!!!
That's insane.
I can't image driving and seeing a section of bridge just collapse and fall to the ground.

Yup, and I was just on it during Memorial Day weekend. It's part of my preferred DC-Philly route since I can make up some time on that stretch. At least 95 parallels it nearby.

I ran across is Sun night and it didn't feel out of level LOL

Where is this bridge on 495? Can't remember the last time I took 95 thru to Philly

These news people are idiots. They're saying the bridge problem is a DEFCON 5. I don't think they have a clue.

DEFCON 5 FADE OUT Lowest state of readiness Normal readiness

Think they might have meant DEFCON 1

DEFCON 1 COCKED PISTOL Nuclear war is imminent Maximum readiness
