3 people dead so far. Happened 3 hours and 15 minutes ago :( . Second day in a row something like this happens in the US. Happened yesterday in California, not sure how bad that was. I just wonder if they hired people from Quebec.

WTF is going on? Obviously it is not only a Quebec problem.

 

Why all of a sudden are these structures collapsing? The US is known to keep their roads in good condition too. Strange...

 

Local government trying to con the Federal government for more cash (conspiracy) :eek::cool:

It should be expected. a massive amount of Roads and bridges were built in the 60's and 70's. These roads and bridges are slowly approaching their estimated lifespans(35 to 45 years) and some are starting to collapse!

Le maire de Laval était a RDI ce matin et amenait un propos tres intéressant, comme quoi plusieurs de ces structures n'ont pas été concues pour la quantité de traffic de camions qu'elles supportent en ce moment. Lorsqu'elles ont été construite, le train était le mode privilégié de transport, le camionnage etait marginal, chose qui n'est plus le cas aujourd'hui, ce qui pourrait avoir des effets sur la durée de vie utile des ponts et structures.

super exact, avec le JIT et notre économie basée sur l'exportation, c'est super important d'avoir une infrastructure performante et de qualité.
