I passed across that bridge earlier that am. In Chicago now.

They have arrested 3 homeless people. One of them female. Sounds like a lot spools of poly conduit were stored under the bridge. Hot enough to melt steel

Time to call in the expert, C. C. Myer.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C._C._Myers

He rebuilt a similar incident in the SF Bay area... gas transport exploded and burned under a major overpass.

Fixed in a couple of weeks.

Sometimes it's amazing what government can get done when it gets out of its own way.

The Gov offered a huge bonus to the contractor for early completion. They probably both knew it could be done early and now the Gov gets a kickback
