  1. Re 6th street bridge. “And the council may also fret about whether it should allow more than 13,000 vehicle trips every day across a bridge that is one of the state’s top priorities for replacement and has been determined to have a 70% probability of failing in a magnitude 7 earthquake.”
    What if we have a 4.0 quake, am I to assume there’s still a strong possibility this bridge could collapse during a “normal” quake? Any engineers out there know?
