Engineer on collapsed Miami bridge warned of cracking days earlier
The Miami Herald reports that an engineer on the bridge that collapsed Thursday, taking at least six lives, warned the Florida Department of Transportation earlier in the week of "cracking" in the concrete.
- The FDOT told the Miami Herald that Pate's voicemail "wasn't heard by any of its employees until...after the bridge fell."
- Cracking is "not unusual in concrete construction," per the Herald. The collapse is being investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board.
