This incongruous trestle bridge traverses a local park. Freight trains crossing it are several lengths longer than the bridge so can take several minutes to cross it.

I cross this bridge all the time:

Quote:
They found tilted rocker bearings used to help support the bridge, heavily degraded concrete on nearly every support section and serious corrosion at the bridge’s joints.

“There’s some permanent deformation,” said Didem Ozevin, a civil engineer at UIC.

Ozevin agreed the report is bad, and said the corrosion and the tilted rocker bearings are the most alarming. So much so that she’d think twice about driving over the bridges.

^ They should, but it prob won't happen any time soon. About a month ago a bipartisan meeting to advance infrastructure spending fell apart when Trump walked in and declined to even sit down: he ranted at the Dems for 10 mins then stormed out, and there's been no progress since afaik.

Trump says no spending deal while Democrats investigate him

PUBLISHED WED, MAY 22 2019 2:08 PM

Stocks that would benefit from infrastructure spending fall and hit their lows of the day after President Donald Trump says he won’t make an infrastructure deal while Democrats investigate him.
Trump cuts short a meeting at the White House with Democratic leadership.
