In this photo taken Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017, a portion of a new offramp, center right, for Highway 99, stands completed and adjacent to the entrance for northbound traffic into the Highway 99 tunnel still being constructed in Seattle. The offramp has a new type of column that flexes when the ground shakes in an earthquake, then snaps back to its original position so that the structure not only survives a quake without collapsing but also sustains so little damage that it can be used immediately. Funded by the California Department of Transportation, scientists at a Nevada seismology lab plan to test a combination of new bridge designs on a giant ''shake table'' to see if they can better withstand big earthquakes like the one that hit Mexico on Tuesday.
