Are your bridges secure?

I just went on Google and typed in 'America's worst bridges'. I don't know what bothers me more, the fact that there are 15,900,000 results (a great chunk of which are not relevant but a disturbingly large amount that are relevant). When you click on several links there is a common pattern:

a. overly congested roadways that lead onto the bridges. Click here.

b. report card grades on roads, and bridges that are rated with mediocre to failing grades.
In fact, click here to see a related article that deals with a report card on dams, bridges, highways, and roadways.

Now here's the kicker - already there are rumblings in the play-yard that certain members of Congress DO NOT want to approve ANY part of President Obama's job's bill. They do not want to play with others. There are certain members of Congress who are a NO because they are more intent upon making President Obama being a one term president than in providing levers that will help their own constituents with getting jobs.

Infrastructure Now!
