Amid Atlanta highway bridge collapse, here’s a look at Austin-area bridge inspection reports

Published on March 30, 2017 under CommunityImpact

Early Thursday evening at approximately 5:40 p.m. CST time, a large fire caused an Atlanta interstate bridge to collapse, according to the Associated Press. The Georgia Department of Transportation authorities say they have shut down I-85 near GA 400, and travelers are cautioned to avoid the area. No deaths or injuries have been reported, and no foul play is currently suspected. In Texas, a report is produced every other year by the Texas Department of Transportation to evaluate each state bridge, including many highway crossings similar to the collapsed Atlanta highway.
