Bailey Bridge failure in Puerto Rico

Some footage of a bridge failure in Puerto Rico caused by hurricane, or was it…

So the bridge was placed in 2017 after the last hurricane, observation tells me the length of the span and supports seem to have been a temporary fix possibly exceeding best practice specifications. Five years later another hurricane washes it away. I’m not sure I would call this a bridge failure, more of an infrastructure priority failure…
