Florida bridge collapse: lessons learnt

Lessons learned from the collapse of a new footbridge over a live highway during construction, resulting in a tragic loss of life.

This presentation, part of the Institution’s Technical Lecture Series, will look at the bridge collapse and the reasoning for the subsequent CROSS Safety Alert (download available below).

It will examine:

  • what happened in the lead up to the collapse
  • why the collapse happened
  • what can be learned by the industry to avoid a repeat event

It will give recommendations, thoughts for the future, and further reading materials. All of this will be aimed at preventing a future tragedy.

Intended for

All those involved in the design and execution of bridges and other structures
