A bridge being constructed in Florida, using a technique called Accelerated Bridge Construction has collapsed, killing at least 6 people and injuring at least 9.
The construction technique was developed after experts realised America’s bridges were disintegrating and more bridges needed to be constructed, quick.
The method of Accelerated Bridge Construction involves building the bridge off-site and then transporting it to the site where it is put into place. This method ultimately results in less disruption but there are now fears that it may have had something to do with the Florida collapse. A probe into the collapse will reveal more.
