The crawl space under the structure is less than 4 feet with no utilities. If it goes it goes and would have gone next summer anyway so the City just has to make repairs a little sooner than it would have been required, except only water bags and no people will be involved.

Please do not forget shoring
for safety especially if you suspect a shear failure. The
shoring is also a good place to mount gauges. The smaller the gap the
smaller any impact. Bending is not generally as much of a potential catastrophic
failure, but calculate anticipated deflections. If the deflections go off
the chart, something is wrong and the test should be terminated.
