-- Historic American Engineering Record
Oh please...if they really wanted explosives, they would have gotten them. I don't understand how buying fakes from the FBI is worse than actually blowing up a bridge with real explosives and because they bought the fakes, it proved they were serious enough about it to go through with it. At least they (the FBI) are actually doing something productive by catching these scumbags rather than spying on innocent civilians.
Looks like we have a little conundrum here. It appears that the FBI provoked these individuals into having sentiments of terrorism: http://rt.com/usa/news/cleveland-fbi-bomb-may-433/
I have no animosity toward state "workers"...as a matter of fact I worked as an inspector for a small engineering firm, but reported directly to INDOT and worked with many good people.
I, like most people on this site, just want to see our transportation heritage treated with respect...which it IS NOT. I understand that not every one of these spans can be saved, but there are way too many that are needlessly destroyed.
And just as I don't want to see terrorists blow up a bridge (of any kind), I also don't want to watch an historic bridge blown up on You Tube.
That was far from the only stupid comment about state workers on here. Not to worry, though. The next time you guys are a topic of conversation on one of my projects will be the first time.
It's comments such as that one that are the reason why state DOTs hate us.
Shame on them. Those clowns deserved to be pushed off the bridge for that, as with all terrorists
A bunch of morons tried to blow up this bridge: http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5j46RroINNjjLq8sO0kRXbgXRxb7w?docId=997a1a16f06b4d6b8d322397ff38414f
The bridge is located between Brecksville and SAGAMORE HILLS, not Northfield.
You will find that W. S. Hindman was involved with the Ohio Stadium as Field Engineer and Chief Engineer. He wrote two articles for "The Ohio State Engineer" about the Ohio Stadium. W. S. Hindman was also the designer and builder of Pitt Stadium in Pittsburgh.
