The mods (perhaps wisely) shut down the last 11-foot-8 discussion after it inevitably degenerated into a debate between know-it-all engineers and know-it-all 11-foot-8 fans. But I say – let the human factors vitriol fly! Just not in the #boing topic.
In our last episode, [it was] argued that the City, State, and Railroad are all disgracefully negligent in allowing too-tall trucks to try to drive under a too-small bridge. Meanwhile, other [users] insisted it was an absolutely insoluble problem that could not be addressed without endless time, space, money, and political capital. I spent a lot of time playing bingo.
Is the 11-foot-8+8 bridge destined to chomp on trucks forever? Are the lorry drivers of greater central North Carolina doomed? Will the unstoppable force win, or the immovable object?
