A reminder that historical preservation is an ongoing thing. The cause of the difficulties isn't mentioned, but I speculate it's related to the age of the memorial, a bridge-like structure formally dedicated in 1962. That's 56 years in a corrosive environment.

Besides the age of the structure; let's not forget two things. 1) It was built in a salt water harbor which doesn't do concrete any good, and 2) that a suffered a collision a few years back. Even thought the collision was said not to have caused any immediate damage, I wouldnt be surprised if helped hasten the memorial's current condition. Hopefully the damage will be repaired well and respectfully.
