really sucks, I'll bet the 55 bridge is packed.

Don't underestimate the power of that river.

A good welder would have that fixed right up. Maybe even fishplate it.   :evil:

Brings back memories of the I-35 bridge failure in 2007, except that it actually fell into the Mississippi River.

Just extend that doubler-plate up another foot and put another 100 or so rivets in it...done.

They're calling that a "crack"?

That is broke in twain!

According to news reports, it may be awhile before you cross it again.  Which sucks for me, since I was planning on riding across it on my way to Little Rock.  So now I've got to decide, do I chance it sucking on diesel fumes stuck waiting to cross on the I-55 bridge, or add two hours riding down to Helena, Arkansas and cross there?

 Kind of a personal question isn't it ?  :grin:
