Overpass Collapses, Many People Annoyed for Months

April 30, 2007 | General | By: Mark VandeWettering

I dropped in at work over the weekend (we are in the final death throes of production on Ratatouille, so I’m basically doing 7 days a week for the next couple of weeks) and noticed that the traffic along 80 was pretty bad. I didn’t think too much of it, but apparently the cause was a collapsed overpass very near Pixar. A tanker truck apparently exploded and burned on one of the overpasses, and the deck above it collapsed. It’s quite the mess, and will likely take months to fix. I went over to an adjacent overpass and took this photo. It’s ugly. Really ugly.
