On March 15 2018 at approximately 1 45 p m a pedestrian bridge under construction in. Miami Florida collapsed One employee and five motorists were fatally injured and another. employee permanently disabled when the bridge fell as the motorists waited for the traffic light. underneath the bridge and as the employees were performing work activities on top of the bridge. structure The bridge at the present stage of construction consisted of a single concrete truss. spanning approximately 174 feet and weighing approximately 930 tons It was placed over the. piers just five days prior to the collapse An adjoining span of concrete truss was to be. constructed next over the canal to make a continuous bridge of 289 feet The concrete bridge. was cast at a nearby off site location using what is known as Accelerated Bridge Construction. ABC and then transported to its final location ABC provides minimal traffic disruption The. bridge was financed through federal grants and constructed at the campus of Florida. International University FIU in Miami The FIU project was a class A Local Agency Program. LAP project The bridge would connect the FIU campus with the City of Sweetwater where. many FIU students reside, The incident was extensively covered by live television and print media The Occupational. Safety and Health Administration OSHA sent officials from the agency s Fort Lauderdale Area. Office and a forensic structural engineer from the OSHA Directorate of Construction Office of. Engineering Services OES in Washington D C to determine the cause of the collapse and. whether industry or OSHA standards were violated During the first week of investigation. OSHA maintained a 24 hour surveillance at the incident site OSHA worked closely with the. National Transportation Safety Board NTSB and local officials inspecting the remnants of the. fallen bridge and interviewing contractors to determine construction activities preceding the. OSHA conducted numerous interviews reviewed pertinent construction documents and. structural computations performed by the structural engineer of record EOR examined the. failed pieces conducted its own structural analysis and viewed hundreds of photographs of the. bridge taken before and after the collapse, Investigation of March 15 2018 Pedestrian Bridge Collapse. at Florida International University Miami FL, We thank the OSHA Fort Lauderdale Area Office particularly Assistant Area Director Juan. Torres and Compliance Officer Anthony Campos for their untiring effort and dedication Alan. Lu Ph D PE performed finite element analysis and Bryan Ewing Ph D PE performed hand. computations both of our office We thank NTSB and all the NTSB field staff for their steadfast. co operation during OSHA s investigation, As a result of the investigation OES concludes that. 1 FIGG Bridge Engineers FIGG the Engineer of Record EOR failed to recognize that. the bridge was in danger of collapsing when it inspected it hours before the collapse The. concrete truss had developed numerous wide and deep structural cracks jeopardizing the. integrity of the bridge The EOR should have immediately instructed that the bridge be. shored at appropriate locations and SW 8th Street be closed At the time of collapse the. post tensioning bars were being re tensioned at the specific instructions of the EOR. 2 The bridge had structural design deficiencies that contributed to the collapse during. construction stage III The cracks on the bridge occurred due to deficient structural. 3 The morning of the incident EOR held a meeting with project participants after. evaluating the cracks over the course of the previous two days At that meeting the EOR. acknowledged that his computations could not replicate the cracks and therefore he did. not know why the cracks were occurring The Construction Engineer and Inspector. CEI of the project advised the EOR at this meeting that the cracks were lengthening. daily Despite these admissions and the knowledge that the cracks were growing in size. EOR stated more than once that the cracks did not present any safety concerns. 4 The magnitude of the cracks warranted that SW 8th Street be immediately closed and the. concrete truss be shored and supported at multiple intermediate locations to reduce the. loads in the north diagonal and the node until final evaluations were done and remedial. measures implemented, 5 Networking Engineering Services Inc dba Bolton Perez and Associates Inc BPA was.
retained by FIU to be the CEI of the project BPA failed to classify the cracks which. Investigation of March 15 2018 Pedestrian Bridge Collapse.
