15 Percent of U.S. Bridges Are at Risk of Collapse

Doesn't this make you feel so safe on your daily travels?
  •  

    An Associated Press analysis of 607,380 bridges in the most recent federal National Bridge Inventory showed that 65,605 were classified as "structurally deficient" and 20,808 as "fracture critical." Of those, 7,795 were both — a combination of red flags that experts say indicate significant disrepair and similar risk of collapse. The famed Brooklyn Bridge ranks among the most decrepit. Cities and states would like to replace the aging and vulnerable bridges, but few have the money.
