  • I LOVE THESE VIDEOS!!!!

    Over height sign flashing to beat hell. At night it could trigger an epileptic fit, for crying out loud. If you watch this often, you might also be wondering why Penske trucks seem to be disproportionately featured throughout the series.

    Great therapy for me over the course of the pandemic. So cathartic. Please forgive my blatant gushing and I take full responsibility for this view.
  • Hey dummies: National Crane is the name of the CRANE MANUFACTURER, not the owner of the truck.
  • We did this one already. The video's from April 2. I'm too lazy to dig up the Fark thread.
  • It's probably a repeat, since Fark has seen every video from that channel get greenlit on Main.
  • why don't they just raise that bridge already, or lower the road?
  • Can we just link directly to Eleven Foot Eight's Youtube instead of feeding the clickbait tracker sites?
  • This was more of a fair fight. A very valiant attempt, but failed to take out the bridge. Needs a bigger horse and a stronger lance. This bridge is more formidable than a windmill.

    Should posthumously name the truck/crane Rocinante.

    We don't need to do this again, do we?

    /short answer: it'd be ludicrously costly to do either, and the municipality that has it can't afford that shiat

    This is how it's done.


    Someone did a smaller version of that to a bridge near me, had to have 1 lane shut down and completely torn down and rebuilt. That bridge being one lane for about 6 months was super inconvenient because there wasn't an alternate for about 4 miles north or south.

    Somewhere, National Crane is trying to decide if this is a PR nightmare, or a moment to brag their crane roughed up 11-foot-8.

    Can you blame Fark? These videos are always entertaining where the bridge hungers for steel, plastic, fiberglass, etc.

    They have already done that, it is why the website is called 11'8" + 8"  That extra 8" inches is when they adjusted the track alignment and lowered the road a bit.  They can't really do much more as it will affect the rail grade if they lift the bridge, and they can't lower the road more as it would create a dip that could cause damage to vehicles undercariage. See the why don't they fix it section of the FAQ: http://11foot8.com/11foot8-faq/

    The truck is the EVER GIVEN.

    Can't they just fire it?

    It's a national embarrassment. Farking request federal funds if needed to dig down five feet. JFC. Here in salt lake when they were installing light rail they dug a major surface street (4 lanes) down about 10 feet or so such that the light rail could easily pass overhead at one particular juncture.

    Sewer lines under it iirc, and there is an at-grade crossing like 2 blocks down. So the taxpayers should spend millions of dollars because drivers are dumbasses? Nah this is way more entertaining.

    Whatever. It's not civilized. You must be one of those new gen people that thrives off of continuous pain. It truly is stupid. And I'm sure engineering a solution would be simple. Maybe some money but solutions are there. But simpletons like you prefer watch others in pain. Okay.

    If I remember correctly, this occurred over I-70 in Kansas. I suspect the locals weren't very happy about the inconvenience either.
    Another view.

  • A failure of civilization.
  • I'm willing to bet that the morons who can't comprehend all the signs and warnings regarding this bridge are the same ones who think the vaccine turns you into a magnet.

    The solution, which is both simple and inexpensive, is for trucks to take another route. This isn't an interstate highway here.
