If last year in the United States could safely be called the year of “tired trains” (more than a thousand of them fell over 12 months), then 2024, apparently, will be the year of bridges and ships.

This time the incident occurred in Oklahoma on the Arkansas River. The bridge, which crosses the Arkansas River where it flows into the Robert S. Kerr Reservoir, got in the path of a cargo barge in an extremely unfortunate way, and it got what it deserved. But this time the scale of the accident was modest.



The bridge survived safely, only one support was damaged, but the barge received more serious damage.

Traffic on Highway 59 was blocked just in case and they are now determining how severe the damage to the bridge is. Experts have yet to find out what caused the barge to collide with the bridge.

Meanwhile, firefighters were just battling a major fire aboard the US Navy ship USNS Button off Dauphin Island, Alabama.

The White House reportedly ordered the US Navy and Coast Guard to remain silent because they did not want more news about the ships to appear in the media this week.

But savvy local journalists still found out some details. A US Navy logistics support vessel ran aground 24 miles off the coast of Dauphin Island due to a fire on board. With the help of 4 tugs, it was able to moor at the Alabama shipyard in Mobile.

Я так зрозумів американці із аваріями на залізниці закінчили. Взялися тепер за водний транспорт. Що буде далі?
