Senior Investigators of the National Transportation Safety Board will present the investigation into a pedestrian bridge collapse. This accident occurred on March 15, 2018, when a partially constructed pedestrian bridge crossing an eight-lane roadway in the city of Miami, Florida, experienced a catastrophic structural failure. The 174-foot-long bridge span fell about 18.5 feet. The presentation will provide a general overview of the investigation, as well as detailed findings related to the safety issue areas that were identified.
