I decided to spin this off in this own thread since the repercussions of this problem could be long term: https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-met-lake-shore-drive-river-bridge-closure-20190211-story.html

Steel rebar is poking out of the piers... Anyone saying they didn't see this coming should be examined  :meh:

seicer:
That's more than likely IDOT or CDOT chipping away loose concrete, which exposed the rebar. It's pretty common and gets patched when the temperatures are warmer. Just because rebar is showing doesn't mean the bridge is structurally deficient.

Latest I've heard is that there's a temporary reinforcement structure in place and that it will reopen tonight.

Another example of crappy roadwork in Chicago...
