    To keep pokin at the bridges with a stick aren't most bridges construction and up keep provided for by the state ? I know St. Louis is getting a new bridge and is being paid jointly by MO & IL . I understand the safe issue and remember how all the inspectors were out the following week and don't remember reading about a lot being closed. I like pork as much as the next guy but I want mine on a plate with a side of potato salad.

    Speaking of pulling numbers out of butts I sure hope we dont lose the 500 million jobs a month Nacy was talking about.

    Here is some of the links that cite 200,000 deficient bridges:

    scroll to pg. 50 on this one
    http://books.google.com/books?id=CR_...icient+bridges


    http://books.google.com/books?id=VvQ...t#PRA4-PA86,M1


    This is a link to maps of structurally deficient bridges in the National Highway System--non NHS bridges or functionally obsolete are not mapped.

    http://www.bts.gov/programs/geograph...ighway_system/

    Lets for a moment consider the 150,000+ deficient bridge number is correct, then that represents a burden on commerce in the form of delivery delays, load restrictions, and rerouting. Bridges like old cars get more expensive to maintain as they age.

    I did not throw out a number that was 25% off a number that is easliy obtained...actually I didnt state a number at all... "Structurally-deficient bridges are not necessarily unsafe" per the study... stick to facts and save the drama for you mamma.


    You whining crying libs crack me up...
    Implicit in your comment was a number you were unwilling to state explicitly. And sadly the structurally deficient bridge (per 1990 and 2005 designations) that was the impetus for the comments was clearly unsafe.

    I said what I said...was not hedging...was not inflating or deflating numbers to fit my emotionally loaded stance on an issue... Let me be very EXPLICIT...I don’t mix word EVER and I NEVER IMPLY anything…I say it. Hope clears things up for you Johnny.




    this is only a guess but I figure you’re for someone that has spent a career in academia?
