|June 2011 (36.086 Degrees, 140.540 Degrees) Rokko Bridge|
Perhaps there was just a loss of bearing capacity during the earthquake that allowed the pile bents to sink below the water's surface. My feeling is that this is an old, locally owned bridge that wasn't designed or retrofit to the standards of Japan's highway bridges.
