"...during planned demolition work."

Not as exciting as a collapse during a demonstration. winky smile

No reported injuries.

RE: Bridge collapse during demo (Ottawa)

I've heard thirdhand that part of this bridge structure was supposed to be rehabbed for LRT. Not sure what parts and what extent. No official source, but the person who told me probably wouldn't have said so if it wasn't true. Take it as you want.

RE: Bridge collapse during demo (Ottawa)

Ha, good point VE1BLL. I'm in the bridge demolition industry, so it's a no-brainer shortening for me. Not for everyone else.

Thanks for the photo AGNT... that's definitely a more useful angle.

RE: Bridge collapse during demo (Ottawa)

No reported injuries, but that one operator was probably wishing he had put on his brown pants that day.
