Many bridges were built without any redundancy especially steel bridges. If the mounting hardware failed the bridges fall. Newer ones have safety factored in where if the mounting fails the bridge stays up. The I 35 bridge in MN was a riveted style bridge that corrosion ate the the material than combined with extra static weight on the deck from construction equipment parked on it it failed
