SWEET. get the Sykorski sky crane and drop in a hunk of that in there.
Joking aside, how about just dropping in the kind of (pedestrian only) slab bridges they use highway crossings?
If there is a risk of water rising again they can just pop it out until the threat subsides.
Even doing a bailey bridge big enough to support foot traffic and maybe the Search[HTML_REMOVED]Rescue and MetroVan side-by-sides can't be that expensive and would again be removable.
No engineer in his right mind would sign off on a flooded bridge that has its footings that were designed to be above water eroding under water with an access road that will flood during spring thaw and heavy rains.
I get this if the new reality is yearly road flooding, but is that really the case? I guess it will be interesting to see how high the water gets in spring.
Mean People SUCK! Nice People SHOVEL!
