Lucky for Ohio this bridge collapsed due to an accident. Now when they replace the bridge (which was already slated for replacement prior to accident) Ohio won't have to be subjected to my originally planned narrative that this bridge was in like-new condition and replacing it was the dumbest investment in Ohio since Michigan gave Ohio the Toledo strip in return for the iron and copper-rich Upper Peninsula.
