Designer of Collapsed Bridge Also Worked On Skyway, Selmon

Bridge passed as safe hours before collapse

On its website, the Tallahassee-based company displays pictures of the completed Skyway and Selmon projects. Because the company didn't question the bridge's safety, FDOT says it had no reason to believe there was a problem.

The suit, filed in Miami-Dade Circuit Court, names FIGG Bridge Engineers Inc., Munilla Construction Management LLC., Networking Engineering Services Inc., Bolton Perez & Associates and Louis Berger U.S. and alleges negligence.

Miami-based contractor MCM said: "Our family's thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by this bad tragedy".

Statements have been issued by several of the organisations involved in last week's fatal collapse of a bridge that was under construction in Florida, USA, though the cause is not not yet know.

"It's traumatic to everyone because it could've happened to anyone, I drove under the bridge when it was up, said P.J. Hall, a 20-year-old sophomore studying worldwide business".

A review of OSHA records, meanwhile, shows MCM has been fined for 11 safety violations in the past five years totaling more than $50,000 after complaints involving its Florida work sites.

"The investigation is ongoing to determine the collapse of the bridge, and FIU is fully cooperating with all authorities to understand what happened".

The bridge's main span, which crossed an eight-lane road, had.

An accelerated construction method was supposed to reduce risks to workers and pedestrians and minimize traffic disruption, the university said.

Miami Engineers and officials concluded that a crack in a university footbridge was not a cause for concern hours before it collapsed and killed six people.

About three hours after the meeting ended, the bridge collapsed. The time is when the bridge crossing Southwest 8th Street near 109th Avenue gave way, crushing those under it. FDOT is routinely included in meetings during LAP project construction.

An FDOT consultant attended a meeting with the project engineers the day of the collapse, and participated in a discussion about the cracks, but FDOT says the engineers said there were no safety concerns and never asked for assistance from the department. Life at FIU, university officials told the community Sunday night, will be far from normal.

Also Monday, lawyers in Orlando plan to announce the filing of the first lawsuit over the bridge collapse, which crushed cars under tons of concrete.

FDOT was quick to distance itself from the responsibility, writing in a press release that the project was a local agencies project, not FDOT's.
