Heads will roll for this, after the MDC garage collapse and now this!

The FIU pedestrian bridge across Southwest Eighth Street collapsed Thursday afternoon, trapping an unknown number of people and cars underneath.

The bridge was installed at Southwest 109th Avenue Saturday morning, intended eventually to provide pedestrian access across Tamiami Trail from FIU’s main campus to Sweetwater, where thousands of students live in off-campus housing or in FIU’s newer dorms.

Before Saturday’s installation, FIU said the method of overall installation significantly reduced the risk to workers, walkers, drivers and minimized traffic disruptions for construction.

Please don’t bring your garbage politics to our beloved section of the forum.
^^Except it received federal funding from Obama's TIGER V program as early as 2013, which likely set conditions over who is awarded contracts. Knowing Democrats and their knack for pay-to-play corruption, combined with Miami's own favoritism, this is no surprise.

The media and useful idiots are so desperate to connect this to President Trump via Paul Manafort, as their Russia conspiracy is on life support.
