NTSB discloses new details about work performed before FIU bridge collapsed

Before workers began adjusting support cables at the north end of the Florida International University bridge that collapsed and killed six people last week, they performed the same work at the opposite end of the bridge, the National Transportation Safety Board said Wednesday.
Adjusting the cables has become a focus of why the 950-ton span suddenly fell just five days after it was put in place over Southwest Eighth Street near the sprawling campus.

The activity was included in the latest update from the NTSB on its ongoing investigation. Spokesman Chris O’Neil said he could not confirm precisely when the work at the south end occurred: whether it was immediately before workers moved to the north end, or earlier.
