A bridge was built in Ontario to connect East and West Canada. This newly built bridge called the Nipigon River Bridge is part of the Trans-Canada Highway, and recently, it broke. The authorities actually don’t know why it failed, but they think it could be due to poor construction/maintenance.
A few people who saw it said it literally just broke apart. Unfortunately for residents of Canada, this was the only bridge connecting East and West Canada. As one may expect, this bridge crosses a river, but said bridge is out of order, so unless there are some boats around… well, I think everyone can finish that sentence.
I must say, it doesn’t seem very intelligent of the Ontarians to not have a backup plan for such a time as this. During our time in Philadelphia, the city was doing construction on one of the bridges entering Philadelphia from the south over the Schuylkill River. And that is why when they closed down this one bridge, people could still enter Philadelphia. There were other bridges…
I’m sure there’s a good reason for the lack of another route. Good thing no one was hurt!
