This is something that got my blood pumping today. My Mom called and sounded panicked. She said Route 66 had collapsed on Route 29 (a major intersection in Gainesville, VA). She couldn't find any news about it on the local television stations.
I jumped in the car, camera in hand, to see what had happened. Nothing quite as dramatic as a collapse of a running freeway, onto a major highway. This is an insection that is frequently closed due to construction. What happened was a construction girder collapsed onto Route 29, from a non-open section of Route 66. Still the photo is rather sacry looking.
No one was injured in the collapse of this steel bean. No property either.
Route 29 will be closed in both directions, on either side of this overpass. Expect delays and detours if this is part of your regular commute.
