Yes it seems to be an unexplained problem!
Is there a batch of bad connectors from way back when made? Did they
cause this during the current construction? Were there strain gage
monitors on the bridge elements. Did they over rely on the computer
modeling parameters? Is there unexpected settling of foundations? Is
there a now discovered higher risk?
