Not that Iím aware if Iíve ever sped across this south Louisiana I-10 bridge, but daaang! You wonít even be able to speed in the middle because theyíll be timing you on the ends. Starting August 1st, if you cross it in less than 18 minutes, youíll get a speeding ticket. By the way, itís 18.2 miles long. #SoKeepItUnder60

Good.  People drive way to fast on the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge.  It's a delicate bridge and it has a low speed limit for a reason.  Don't upset the vibration because you are an impatient reckless diver.

That stretch is part of why I have gone across I-10 as opposed to US-190 2 x in my life.

What is the bridge's resonance frequency? Sounds like a design issue to me.

I don't know, I am not that smart.  Just drive slower on it so it won't collapse is all I got out of the article I read some years back.  Of course it's a design issue.  It's Louisiana.

So I understand, it is about the mud under the supports. There is no "firm foundation".

They drilled forever until they hit solid ground and built from there.  Of course that was 50-60 years ago so that does have a shelf life. 

Rothman:
Wait...I can singlehandedly bring a bridge down just by driving too fast on it?  I believe I sped on that bridge already.
