Collapsed Highway in Sudbury Ontario

Mid morning on May 07, 2004 the bridge over Highway 17 West (Lorne Street) in Sudbury collapsed.

The bridge has been undergoing repairs for some weeks but Highway 17 running under it has been open to traffic.

Traffic of necessity is now being routed elsewhere, police and investigators are on hand.

Our thanks to Steve and Al for getting the photos to us so quickly.


Update: May 10

We have been unable to acquire any information about the collapse. When calling City Hall or various other sources a resounding silence seems the norm. When asked who designed and/or built the bridge we have been told that information is not being given out.

Apparently everything was done perfectly, no one is responsible, and it probably never even happened.
