Biden To Visit Site Of Baltimore’s Francis Key Scott Bridge Collapse

President Joe Biden will visit the site of the Francis Scott Key Bridge collapse in Baltimore on Friday to meet with officials and get an “on-the-ground look at federal response efforts,” the White House said.

During his visit, Biden will meet with “loved ones” of the six workers killed during the bridge collapse, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said.

The container ship Dali struck the Francis Scott Key Bridge at about 1:30 a.m. on March 26, partially collapsing the bridge, officials in Maryland said.

Six construction workers are believed to have fallen from the collapsing bridge into the frigid waters of the Patapsco River. The bodies of two of the missing workers have since been recovered, while four remain unaccounted for and are presumed dead, officials said.

“They were hard workers laboring in the middle of the night to repair potholes on a bridge that tens of thousands of travelers crossed every day,” Jean-Pierre said during a briefing Thursday.

Biden will be joined by Maryland Gov. Wes Moore, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and other Baltimore officials during his trip. The president will receive operational updates on response efforts and updates on wreckage removal, according to the White House.
