Interstate 5 bridge collapse
Money was not a factor
Enough already with the letters asking the government to tax us more so no more bridges will fall down [“Mid-June opening of bridge on track,” News, June 4.]
Lack of funds had nothing to do with the demise of the I-5 bridge. It was brought down by an oversize load driven by a trucker who should have been given better information, and/or there should have been a clearance sign on the bridge.
The bridge was inspected and maintained. Money didn’t play any part in the problem.
