Nearly 56,000 bridges called structurally deficient
Advertisement
Nearly 56,000 bridges nationwide, which vehicles cross 185 million times a day, are structurally deficient, a bridge construction group announced Wednesday.

The American Road and Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) list of 55,710 deficient bridges includes high-profile spans such as Throgs Neck in New York, Yankee Doodle in Connecticut and Memorial Bridge in Washington, D.C.


The list is based on Transportation Department data. The department scores bridges on a nine-point scale, and while the deficient ones might not be imminently unsafe, they are classified in need of attention.

More than one in four bridges (173,919) are at least 50 years old and have never had major reconstruction work, according to the ARTBA analysis. State transportation officials have identified 13,000 bridges along interstates that need replacement, widening or major reconstruction, according to the group.

“America’s highway network is woefully underperforming,” said Alison Premo Black, the group's chief economist who conducted the analysis. “It is outdated, overused, underfunded and in desperate need of modernization.”

The five states with the most deficient bridges are Iowa with 4,968, Pennsylvania with 4,506, Oklahoma with 3,460, Missouri with 3,195 and Nebraska with 2,361.

We're getting pretty close to the end of the world. It's probably not worth the trouble and inconvenience to fix them now at this point.

The post is pretty doomy. With all this rain freezing heat and constant shaking from cars and trucks and the rivers they cross are deep depressions, some are faults. They are concrete and steel old and ready for an accident to happen.

The Elite know what's up and does America have the capital? Tolls perhaps.

Being the largest capitalist country in the world is the most broke. Too many Elitists robbing the assets of the US. Trump sees this as well. I sure hope the fortunes turn around with some extra cash for the bridge infrastructures. Things are picking up so best to fix the exit routes for the peasants. Just in case, though may have been a plan to let them go. Just a thought.

Not a single penny should go to foreign aid until the roads and bridges are fixed.

Make America's bridges safe and great again.

Its not just bridges, the roads are falling apart, the dams are all well damned and collapsing and in general the entire infrastructure is disintegrating.
Its all Nixon's fault up until him we were building new dams every year, highways were expanding along with bridges.

There is a message there, what is it telling you?. Haven't figured it out yet myself besides Nixon. Is it all one big conspiracy? There has been a lot of water under the bridge since.

Don't worry. According to right-wing regulation-free capitalism, the bridges that collapse are owned by companies that deserve to go out of business because they build poor bridges. The consumer will not use a crumpled bridge, and that bridge company goes out of business.

Free market capitalism for the win! Those crazy socialists and their bridge regulations need to mind their own beeswax!

He was facing impeachment and forced to resign, but no president since has even tried to undo a single thing that he did, they all make the changes he made stronger.
I still have some hope with a proposition I saw floating around to eliminate the EPA, that would or should put the department of wildlife back on track to help with dams for aquatic habitat.
Then they could end the war on drugs and reroute those funds to fixing roads and bridges, maybe even the taxes from drugs could help.
Next step remove the ban on tobacco and alcohol advertising but tax those advertisements to create an extra fund for infrastructure, add a big tax to the sale of all advertisements but bigger on tobacco, alcohol, drugs etc.
If those options build enough financial momentum end all communications and trade with China the way it was before Nixon broke diplomatic silence with China.

I was milling about if I should mention what has been happening here in BC. Now I will. There has been a push here due to seismic activity off the west coast to up grade all bridges and brick schools and other brick strictures. Even the tiny bridge I cross has been upgraded and tagged safe as can be. Has nothing to do with Socialism. Just a care for everyones safety.
