Technique Used In Collapsed Florida Bridge Used In Hundreds Of Others

More than 200 bridges in Utah were built with the same rapid construction technique used in the Florida bridge that collapsed this week and killed at least six people, officials said Friday. Carmen Swanwick, chief structural engineer for the Utah Department of Transportation, said the Miami collapse doesn’t sway her confidence in the method or stability of Utah’s bridges, which are inspected once every two years. She said the state will continue to use the technique.
