Yoo Hoo! Who Else Cares? Maybe, it ain't needed? No one else knows?
Canadian National Railroad Manistique bridge support pier.
Why didn't you know about this?
Is it an invitation to a disaster due to poor inspection, failed repair/construction techniques, water intrusion, sub-zero temperatures,
ice impact, corrosion, train traffic stress, and eventual collapse? I dunno.
My ignorant and misplaced concern, perhaps? No one else understands enough to care? I dunno.
Has anyone cared for decades, beside me, since the last evidently poor attempt of repair?
