Queen Isabella Causeway Collapse

I was reading The Los Fresnos - Port Isabel Tribune and I read a small piece about the Queen Isabella Causeway Collapse. This happened a few days after the terrorist attacks back in 2001. At first, it was thought to be another attack. Later, it was determined that the collapse was caused by poor navigation.
 
My wife and I got a chance to visit the causeway during reconstruction. We went to the fishing pier and watched as the construction crews worked to rebuild. They worked around the clock. For a while, they set up ferries to carry vehicles across the bay. We tried to ride the ferry, but the lines were really long. Instead, we hung out in Port Isabel and had a good time.
 
I feel sad for the people who died at the causeway and I hope that they and their families are able to find peace.
