I didn't cause another bridge to collapse

Last year on August 1 we were canoeing down the Annisquam River in Gloucester and I looked up at the A Piatt Andrews bridge (Rte 128) and noticed what bad shape was in. Several hours later later when looking at the internet I noticed that the Minneapolis I35W bridge had collapsed killiung and injuring many people.

Yesterday on August 1 we canoed under it again (they haven't started the construction effort to fix it yet) so it looks equally bad. As far as I can tell no other bridges collapsed yesterday.
