CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"


Dan Sligh, injured in the collapse of a bridge near Seattle, Washington, describes what it was like when the bridge collapsed.

Three people were rescued about 7:00 p.m. Thursday May 23, 2013 after a bridge collapsed into the Skagit River in western Washington and dropped vehicles and people into the water.

The Skagit River Bridge had a federal sufficiency rating of 59.8 at a 2010 inspection. The number is figured base on a combination of structural soundness and traffic-carrying ability.

The Skagit bridge was rated “structurally deficient” in 1992 and functionally obsolete in 2000 and 2010, according to a report by uglybridges.com, which cites the National Bridge Inventory data for that year. There was erosion on the stream banks below, and serious road-deck damage or wear. By 1994, the National Bridge Inventory federal database listed the bridge as “functionally obsolete,” an improved rating but an indication the bridge still wasn’t adequate for modern traffic.
