ESL 102: Interstate Bridge Collapses


ESL 102: Interstate Bridge Collapses


Download


An eight-lane steel bridge on interstate 35 collapsed during evening rush hour. Dozens of cars plummeted 60 feet into the Mississippi River. Ten people died, and more than 50 were seriously injured. The bridge was being repaired because it was found to be structurally deficient; it needed to be reinforced. Like many bridges throughout America, the bridge was built more than 40 years ago. Traffic was much lighter then. Nowadays, cars, buses, and big trucks cross the bridge steadily, even late at night.

"I heard a terrific boom. It was like the loudest thunder I ever heard," said one witness to the disaster. She ran out of her car to see what was happening. She saw cars falling into the river and heard people screaming. She heard the loud cracking sounds of the bridge collapsing and splashing sounds as bridge sections and vehicles hit the water. "It was horrible," she said.

Engineers had no explanation for the collapse. They said the bridge had been inspected recently. The report said that, although it was structurally deficient, the bridge was not unsafe. Since the report did not declare the bridge unsafe, the decision was to simply reinforce it at strategic locations.

Americans were shocked that an American bridge could simply collapse. The news was all over TV, radio, and most newspapers. One newspaper investigation revealed that almost 10 percent (about 59,000) of America's bridges were structurally deficient.

Initially, some people speculated that terrorists might have rigged a bomb to the bridge. Others noted that all the pigeon poop on the bridge's support rails might have eroded the steel. One blogger wrote that, before he drove over another bridge in America, he would make sure that a life jacket was in the front seat next to him.

Cầu liên tiểu bang bị sập

Chiếc cầu thép tám làn xe liên tiểu bang 35 đã bị sập trong giờ cao điểm tối. Hàng tá xe hơi rơi 60 feet xuống dòng sông Mississippi. Mười người chết, và hơn 50 người đã bị trọng thương. Cầu đã được sửa chữa vì thấy cấu trúc kém; cần gia cố. Như bao nhiêu cây cầu xuyên nước Mỹ, cầu được xây dựng 40 năm trước đây. Thời ấy giao thông nhẹ nhàng hơn. Ngày nay, xe hơi, xe buýt, và xe tải lớn băng qua cầu dày đặc, ngay cả vào đêm khuya.

"Tôi nghe tiếng bom khủng khiếp. Nó như tiếng sấm lớn nhất mà tôi từng nghe," một nạn nhân chứng kiến. Cô chạy khỏi xe xem chuyện gì đã xảy ra. Cô thấy xe rơi xuống sông và nghe người ta la hét. Cô nghe tiếng răng rắc lớn của cầu sập và tiếng những mảnh cầu và xe rơi ầm xuống nước. "Thật là kinh khủng," cô nói.

Các kỹ sư không có lời giải thích nào cho việc sập cầu. Họ nói cầu vừa được kiểm tra. Báo cáo nói rằng, mặc dù cấu trúc yếu, cầu vẫn an toàn. Vì báo cáo không nói cầu không an toàn, quyết định chỉ là gia cố cầu ở những điểm trọng yếu.

Người dân Mỹ bị sốc khi chiếc cầu Mỹ chỉ đơn giản bị sập. Tin tức trên tất cả TV, radio, và hầu hết các báo. Một tờ báo nghiên cứu cho thấy gần 10 phần trăm (gần 59,000) chiếc cầu Mỹ có cấu trúc yếu.

Ban đầu, vài người ngờ rằng có khủng bố cài bom ở cầu. Những người khác cho rằng chim bồ câu ị trên thanh gầm cầm ăn mòn thép. Một cư dân mạng viết rằng, trước khi lái xe qua cầu ở Mỹ, anh ta sẽ đảm bảo áo phao cứu hộ ở ghế trước, cạnh anh ta.

Một chiếc cầu thép tám làn xe trên xa lộ 35 liên bang đã bị sập trong giờ cao điểm tối. Hàng tá xe hơi rơi 60 feet thẳng xuống sông Mississipi. Mười người chết và hơn 50 người bị thương nặng. Chiếc cầu đã được sửa chữa vì nó được phát hiện có cấu trúc chưa hoàn chỉnh; nó cần được gia cố. Giống như tất cả những chiếc cầu trên toàn nước Mỹ, chiếc cầu được xây dựng đã hơn 40 năm. Hồi đó xe cộ lưu thông nhẹ nhàng hơn rất nhiều. Ngày nay, xe hơi, xe buýt, và xe tải nặng chạy qua cầu đều đặn, thậm chí vào cả đêm hôm khuya khoắt.

"Tôi nghe một tiềng ầm rất lớn. Nó giống như tiếng sấm động lớn nhất mà tôi chưa bao giờ nghe thấy." một nhân chứng trong thảm hoạ cho biết. Cô chạy ra khỏi xe để xem điều gì đang xảy ra. Cô thấy xe hơi đang rớt xuống sông và nghe tiếng người ta đang gào thét. Cô nghe tiếng rạn vỡ của chiếc cầu đang đổ sập và tiếng nước bắn toé lên khi các bộ phận của chiếc cầu và xe cộ va chạm với mặt nước. "Thật là kinh khủng," cô nói.

Các kỹ sư chưa có lời giải thích nào cho việc cầu sập. Họ nói chiếc cầu vừa mới được kiểm tra. Bản báo cáo cho biết rằng, cho dù cấu trúc còn thiếu sót, chiếc cầu vẫn an toàn. Kể từ lúc bản báo cáo công bố chiếc cầu vẫn chắc chắn, quyết định chỉ đơn giản là gia cố tại những vị trí trọng yếu.

Những người dân Mỹ bị choáng vì một chiếc cầu của Mỹ có thể bị sập một cách dễ dàng như thế. Tin tức được đưa khắp trên ti-vi, ra-đi-ô, và hầu hết các nhật báo. Một tờ báo điều tra cho thấy gần 10%(khoảng 59,000)chiếc cầu ở Mỹ có cấu trúc chưa hoàn chỉnh.

Lúc đầu, một số người suy đoán là bọn khủng bố có thể đặt bom chiếc cầu. Một số khác lại lưu ý đến tình trạng phân chim bồ câu trên các thanh gầm cầu đã ăn mòn thép. Một blogger đã viết, trước khi anh lái xe qua một chiếc cầu khác ở Mỹ, anh phải chắc chắn rằng có một chiếc áo phao cứu sinh để ở ghế trước sát bên anh.
