This Week’s Bridge Problem, No. 236

  1. Oh! Galloping Gertie! Yes, Tacoma has always been a little… special.

    I wonder if that’s why we started building floating bridges around here instead…

  2. Bryn Jones Says:

    The Albert Bridge between Battersea and Chelsea, London, has signs at either end that read,

    “All troops must break step when marching over this bridge”.

    • Bryn Jones Says:

      Yes, that’s right. The sign on the Albert Bridge looks old, and perhaps dates from the time of the construction of the bridge. It certainly predates the original Tacoma Narrows Bridge by decades.

    • Anton Garrett Says:

      Which presumably pre-dated the Tacoma problem.
