|March 2011 (-43.518 Degrees, 172.677 Degrees) Dallington Bridge|
This is a combined utility and pedestrian bridge. It's composed of two reinforced concrete arch ribs supporting a concrete deck. During the September 2010 earthquake the two banks moved a little closer together and during the February 2011 earthquake the banks moved much closer together. This raised the bridge and caused flexural damage at the top.
