Re: Are we OK Wash. State
Thankfully, just a few minor injuries. It certainly could have been much worse. Structural engineers categorize the bridge as "fracture critical", which means there is a high probability of total collapse if one structural member is damaged. Fortunately, they lost one section of the bridge and that was all. However, now begins the process of determining whether the entire span needs replacement or if the one section can be repaired. Either way, it's going to be a huge challenge getting to the northwest corner of WA state and up to BC. I-5 just became an interstate highway with stop signs.
