BRIDGE: Army has experience in fixing fallen bridges

The bridge collapse situation takes me back. During World War II, a U.S. Army Engineer Combat Bridge Company would have quick fixed a fallen bridge within a maximum of 24 hours so tanks could move across.

Given the opportunity, perhaps Joint Base Lewis-McChord would have treated this as a training exercise, flexed their muscle and saved time along with taxpayer monies.
