Japan's Bridges: Kitsuneyachi Bridge in Miyagi Prefecture (2)
June 2011 (38.5556 Degrees, 141.4246 Degrees) Kitsuneyachi Bridge
A closer look at yesterday's bridge that shows mostly cosmetic damage from the March tsunami. It's curious how some bridge spans were washed away by the tsunami while other spans stayed put. Probably a combination of the wave height and velocity, how much air was trapped under the spans, and how well they were tied to the bent caps.
