Or a very rigid bridge mounted on a combination pivot & slide at each end.
Yes, although you're assuming that the quakes which constitute the movement of the fault are small. Seriously though, any structure spanning a moving fault is going to have issues over time. The Kobe earthquake struck during the construction of the Akashi Kaikyou bridge, and the two sides ended up shifted a metre further apart. Fortunately the design was able to cope with the change, and the deck hadn't been built at the time.

I'm assuming Ed's road can change direction depending on traffic demands?

So we put the car in PARK, set the hand brake, turn off the engine, and wait. Is this like waiting for a big freight train to go by on tracks that cross the road?

You might not have to wait long. The development in North Albany, Oregon has been going gangbusters for the past few years.

I walked up to the Caspian Grill for dinner the other day with my newly reacquired K10D and the F 50mm F1.7 I had inherited from my Dad. There, half block from my place, was this re-messaged street sign. I’m fortunate that there are 30 or so eateries within walking distance of home and none are fast food types. It makes it real easy to not cook so I can stop and...

The difference between that sign out in your field and the ones out here is that there are no bullets holes in it.

It used to, but I have not seen it used in the other direction for years... This is the inbound upper level road in the Queensboro Bridge... the Outbound upper level road does turn to Inbound as well during the AM rush hour.
