Local Bridge Safety Southern California has 91 of the 100 most heavily traveled bridges in the United States. Of the top ten, almost all are on Interstate 10 in Los Angeles. Investigative reporting by the Sacramento Bee has raised questions about the safety of bridges in California. In the aftermath, one safety inspector has been fired for falsifying records, including those for an underpass on the 405 freeway in Culver City. The story begins with the new, eastern span of the San Francisco Bay Bridge, which is still under construction. There are three structures in Southern California where data were falsified: a retaining wall at the Braddock Drive underpass of the 405 Freeway in Culver City; a carpool connector lane between the 57 and the Pomona Freeway near Diamond Bar; and a ramp on the Riverside Freeway at La Sierra Avenue in Riverside.

Trump plays scolder-in-chief with NATO allies At the opening of NATO’s dramatic new headquarters in Brussels today, President Trump acknowledged that Article 5 — promising that “an attack on one nation is an attack on all” -- has only been invoked one time: in the aftermath of September 11. But the President failed to provide what 27 other Alliance members have been waiting for: a re-commitment by America’s new leader to Article 5. Instead, they got a scolding.
