Major crack found in Interstate 40 bridge linking Arkansas and Tennessee

Major crack found in Interstate 40 bridge linking Arkansas and Tennessee

Repairs to the Interstate 40 bridge linking Arkansas and Tennessee could take months after a crack was found in the span. The six-lane bridge Hernando DeSoto Bridge into Memphis was shut down Tuesday after inspectors found a ’significant fracture’ in one of two 900-foot horizontal steel beams that are crucial for the bridge’s integrity. Fatigue is being considered as the cause for the crack.

That's Memphis for you. For a city with so much potential, it's local officials care more about identity politics, rather than building and maintaining it's infrastructure.

For those of you who think autonomous vehicles are a reality...we can't even MAINTAIN the roads and bridges that our grandfathers built, let alone make them smart.

We don't need no infrastructure plan. Just let it crumble. Problem solved.

Vibrations and weight melt steel beams. Just a... theory.
