      Earthquakes Will Not Collapse Your Bridge or Any Concrete Structures

      Environmental impacts such as salt, acid rain, and carbon dioxide can cause concrete bridges to deteriorate by decreasing the pH and undermining the protection of reinforcement steel. Earthquakes can also contribute to the destruction of concrete structures that have lost their physical strength.
