Rapid Repair

A couple of months before I went to California, there was a bad accident. Some guy wrecked his tanker truck. It happened under a heavily travelled section of interstate in Oakland, just off the Bay Bridge. And it burned, taking down a large section of the bridge with it. Hundreds of thousands of commuters were left with very few options to get home, and the damage was estimated to take up to a year to repair. Well, thanks to some well-funded incentives to finish quickly, the road was back in place in less than a month. Which is why I took this picture of the white section of the road. That's where all the damage was. I just thought you'd like to know.
