What's that Infrastructure? (Ep. 2 – More Transportation Infrastructure)

May 2, 2020

What’s better than transportation infrastructure? More transportation infrastructure! Thanks again to everyone who sent in photos.
EDIT: Several people have commented that the angled frames around the signs are to prevent graffiti.

  • That broken rebar on the bridge, at 0:18, concerns me. It is in a critical zone that suffers tensile stress, precisely where rebar is most needed. But I digress.

    As always, a nicely done video. Thumbs up!

  • I don't have pictures but I've seen many places trying to bandaid bridge columns with fiberglass wraps and retrofitted steel band clamps. It's a shame that we don't take better care of our vital infrastructure.

  • Hey that bridge in North Dakota is a landmark! Cool that it made it in the video. I live there.

  • The angled frame is to keep people from getting to the platform and vandalizing with graffiti Or stealing the copper wiring from the lights They’re popular in Los Angeles County you don’t see them so much for a live in Ventura County and southern California

  • 1:35 yes the newzeland one is the less expensive in the long run, not destroying a truck saves more than the cost of this installation ..

  • Dont worry studying Civil Engineering guys.. It's much more easier compared to broader disciplines Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.

  • we have the same sort of moving structure on our steam turbines. as the turbine and casing heats up it expands, sometimes up to a few inches and the entire case needs to accommodate that expansion, some are set on steel wheels, others simply slide inside a track but the most interesting i've seen are ones that sit on an I beam type structure and the support flexes back and forth as it expands and contracts.

  • Construction engineering was always fascinating

  • The bridge in Durham also has lasers about 1 block away to trigger the flashing lights, sign and so on… but all the warnings do nothing to the trucks.. the city and Carolina Railroad decided to do what they could by raising the bridge 8 inches. They could not go lower on the underpass due to utilities under the pavement. They could only go up 8 inches…. (rail would require raising the grade crossings on both sides… )– Problem with a 12' 4" or whatever.. it still gets hit.

  • THhat one with the sacrificial beam also has a laser system, taht's why there is a flashing sign saying "overheight turn right". its just that bridge was smart enough to put something there for vehicles to hit, instead of just missing the sign and hitting the bridge.

  • Well the way things have been going for the past couple decades, we would be totally surprised if the parents didn't have to use a crowbar to pry their kid's butts off of their seats as well as bribe them with more video game and facebook time just to go take a look at these cool infrastructures ;o)

  • 11 foot 8 has a detection system AND traffic lights that tell overheight drivers to turn. It isn't just a hunk of steel in front of the bridge.

  • I feel like they should put up a bunch more signs in front of that 11 foot 8 bridge. Like: "This bridge will rip open your truck". "We really mean it". "# trucks ripped open in year X: …" etc.

  • I thought this was amazing. Up there with the train that replaces ties and tracks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvuufBqp0_4

  • I5 south in LA, I was driving a Semi and forgot to take the I5 truck lane. A mile later I was in with all of the cars shitting bricks because I didn't want to be caught by popo, and because I really have no clue why they split the traffic.

  • Trump's ideas of better infrastructure,is golf course s,hotels and restaurants for rich dumb fat asses like him😡

  • Can I also send infrastructure engineering fails too? We got so much of that in my country, all due to rampant corruption on all levels of social status.

  • sunshades on tunnels are stupid. they're good for the eyes but theyre basically giant holed slabs of concrete. everytime one breaks and falls, someone dies and the tunnel is closed for hours. we'd have to calculate the deadliness of falling sunshades VS the deadliness of driving into a tunnel without sunshades.
