It's mind boggling. How can something like that happen with all the permits and inspections and oversight that goes with a project like that? Perhaps that's the answer. A wink and nod and bundle of cash in someone's pocket and things get overlooked...

I wonder what was "instant" about this bridge's construction. I suppose the span was built elsewhere and lifted into place in a day. But the rest of the bridge's construction certainly took some time.
What a tragedy. It will be interesting to see how the investigation unfolds.

You just might have hit on what went wrong with this ill-fated bridge.
The structure was built to withstand F5 hurricanes,
but the ground & underneath supports might have weakened.
All the permits, inspections & such had to be completed, so...
who knows? Might be something we, the Public, will never
be privy to, due to the lawsuits, etc. Andyes, sadly, I’m s.u.r.e
attorneys for the dead/injured, have already been contacted.

I wonder if it was another sinkhole...
What a terrible tragedy. Part of a double freeway collapsed in Oakland during the huge 1989 earthquake, I know how awful it is.
Edit, never mind the sinkhole comment, I see it was a footbridge, not over water.
