Not sure it's as amusing as the guy who jumped off the bridge in an attempted suicide, only to land on some discarded mattresses... But it's a close second!
"Whippits"? ---Whippits good!
That was the best news story I've heard in ages!
PS. "Whippits" - Laughing gas.
"Whippits"? That is a new one...
Only in DETROIT... someone attempted a Blues Brothers maneuver over this bridge!
The design of the Fort Street Bridge was directed by the Okemos, MI office of Hardesty & Hanover.
A Scherzer type bascule is not at all uncommon for 2015. At least 5 have been completed since 2010.
That is correct, see attached from bridge plans. The structure was designed by Hardesty and Hanover.
From the photos at http://www.detroitnews.com/picture-gallery/news/local/detroi..., this appears to be a Scherzer-type rolling lift bridge, an unusual design for 2015. Is this true?
