The Miami Herald reported, "A pedestrian bridge under construction collapsed Thursday, just days after crews had dropped an elevated 950-ton span in place on a signature project that was intended to give Florida International University students a safe route across the busy roadway."
The $14 million project was partly federally funded through Obama's Tiger program (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery).Christian Britschgi at Reason magazine wrote, "On 2013, the FIU was awarded $11.4 million in TIGER money for its University City Prosperity Project, which included the pedestrian bridge. Some 52 projects were awarded $458 million in that round of TIGER grantsâ€”known as TIGER Vâ€”using methodology that was later criticized by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) for violating DOT's own standards."
He quoted Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz gushing over the project in 2013.
She said, "More jobs will be created in our community thanks to this grant, and I look forward to celebrating the project's success with everyone in South Florida."
