Because they wanted to keep the highway open and because they wanted to put the first half of the bridge up before the support pillar was even built or the second half of the bridge was ready to act as a counterweight to the first half.

They paid millions of dollars for this bridge because "4,000 students live in that apartment complex and 1 student died crossing that street last year".

Well, there are still 4,000 students living on that half of the street, and now at least 1 student died on that street because of this failed bridge, so what are they going to fucking do about it now?

I saw a mug today that said "Sure, lets do it the dumbest way possible because it makes your job easier."

Reminded me of a few ways we do things at my job.....is this why society is crumbling?

I can take no credit for it. Just passing on the fine work of AvE for those who may not have come across it by other means.

This might be a dumb question, but why not link to youtube in this case so that he gets some money off this?

This guy is Canadian Eh?

It made perfect sense soon as I saw the rendering. Its a suspension bridge. The bridge should not have been put into place until the suspension pillar and cables, and the opposing, balancing side was ready. There I solved it for you.

Except it was designed so the pillar couldn't be put into place until both sides were installed.

That seems super odd. Not that I know anything about bridges, load bearing or suspension bridges.

Here the Golden Gate Bridge is under construction. As Suspension Bridge. And the Suspension was built first.

Here the Brooklyn Bridge is under construction. Suspension Bridge. Suspension built first.

Severn Bridge

Runyang Bridge

Anywho, for someone that knows nothing about bridges and shit, there seems to be a common event happening when making them. The support is built first.

Everybody. Construction company for shit work. FDOT for not shutting down the highway. City for approving a shit bridge. If the uni was at all involved them too. Also the auto insurance companies.

A variety of people for a variety of reasons. Mainly whoever was liable for the installation process, probably the contractor doing it, or whoever oversaw their field amendments to the process.

Whoever made the call to keep the road open after the possibility of total failure was raised, if evidence is available, could face criminal charges.

The question should be who gets jailed, but you have been conditioned to not think that.
