With the recent troubles at the St. Louis bridge, I was wondering if there are safety mechanisms in place to stop the bridge deck & counter weights from dropping should a cable break. We pass under these bridges every summer on our way to Lake Ontario and I had never thought about it. Suddenly the question does not seem so theoretical anymore.
