    Ugh.....I've crossed that bridge many, many times. Never was one of my favorites, always dreaded it and often went out of my way to avoid it. What a terrible tragedy. That's a helluva big port, that's gonna muck things up there for months if not more.....

    This will be a major disruption in the Baltimore area, not for months but for years.

    Rebuilding the Francis Scott Key Bridge over the Patapsco River will probably take years and cost hundreds of millions of dollars, experts said. But the shipping channel from the Port of Baltimore, a major economic engine for the city, could be cleared in months.

    On Wednesday, federal agencies were working to recover the bodies of six construction workers who died after the bridge collapsed, and investigators for the first time boarded the ship that struck the well-traveled span.
