13. Good question: "Is this an isolated incident"?
My guess, is NO.

Roadwork around here is an ongoing thing, and they are always in a rush to get things done. Haste makes waste :)

They were lucky this time, but if concrete "falls" from a relatively new bridge, what happens when we get a "shakey-shakey-shakey"? This is a very high overpass & the traffic is brutally congested most of the day & night.
