An Engineer Noted Cracking In FIU Bridge Days Before It Collapsed

Miami-Dade Police Director Juan Perez says DNA may be needed to confirm some victims' identities, along with fingerprints and family photographs.

However, the voicemail message from FIGG's lead engineer Denney Pate, including his assertion that the cracking posed no safety issue, was not retrieved until Friday, a day after the tragedy, according to the state transportation agency. "At no point during any of the communications above did FIGG or any member of the FIU design build team ever communicate a life-safety issue".

A Jamaican man was identified among the six victims who were crushed to death when a 950-ton pedestrian bridge at Florida International University (FIU) collapsed on Thursday.

"Obviously some repairs or whatever will have to be done but from a safety perspective we don't see that there's any issue there", Pate said. The employee was out of the office and did not receive the voicemail until yesterday, the FDOT said. He was on a trip to London when he got the news and said he was dreading the return.

Doctors at the Kendall regional medical centre continued to treat 10 trauma patients, two of them in critical condition.

"We don't normally do it that way", Arockiasamy said. FIU said the crack was the reason the meeting was called, and that it lasted two hours. By Friday, the operation turned fromrescue to recovery. The bridge was the first in the world to be constructed entirely of self-cleaning concrete, said the university.

The goal of the $14 million project was to provide a safe path over the busy highway after the death of an FIU student a year ago. Here we are establishing a real, practical application of what we learn in the classroom. "[The inquiries] will help determine whether someone is liable for this".

"The timely innovation comes when approximately 25 percent of our Nation's aging bridges need fix or replacement and our highways are already congested without the added strain of road closures", says the FHA. Thursday, law enforcement responded to the intersection of Southwest Eighth Street and Southwest 109th Avenue west of Miami to the bridge collapse. Both companies have been involved in construction accidents before.

"MCM, meanwhile, was accused of substandard work in a lawsuit filed this month by a worker injured when a makeshift bridge MCM built at Fort Lauderdale International Airport collapsed under his weight".

In its own statement Saturday morning, FIU said the crack was discussed in the presence of an FDOT representative. The company has built terminals at south Florida's airports and cruise ports, and a school for the United States government at Guantánamo Bay in Cuba.

One factor being examined as a possible cause of the collapse was the lack of a central tower, which, along with cables, is usually put in place early during the construction of a suspension bridge in order to keep it in place.

At the Saturday morning briefing, FIU President Mark Rosenberg didn't expand on the fact that FIU had known about the report of cracking.

"This bridge was about goodness, now it's about sadness", he said. "We want to find out why it happened".
