America’s 70,000 Unsafe Bridges Would Cost $70 Million to Repair

Recently Transportation for America conducted a survey which is really, reallly frightening.  The survey states that approximately 70,000 bridges are structurally unsafe all around the U.S.A.

Chicago residents have even more to fear, almost 400 bridges within the city have serious structural problems!  This states that the concerned engineers have certified that these bridges have serious defects involving bridge support or decking.

 If these structures are to be overhauled, it will cost around $70 million.  But at least if we spent this much, we would be creating around 35,000 American jobs.
