1. Does that bridge has structural problems making it unsafe?

I drove on it a few times this year.

3. I think Mitch voted for the Infrastructure bill

But that doesn't mean he doesn't deserve to be called out - just as a general principle.

Yes, I think that bridge should be high on the list.

5. Seems like the $$ would be better directed towards bridges that actually need repairs

Last week people were suggesting infrastructure projects be withheld from red states. Now we want to make them a priority?

7. All the bridges in Kentucky are falling down.

The one on 75 is dropping chunks of concrete onto vehicles. That one is big news too.

There no good count of how many local bridges are either closed or actually unsafe just waiting to collapse but not inspected.

A bridge in my hometown was closed 3 years on a State Hwy. Trucks had to go 50 miles out of the way but locals were literally driving the creek about 2 miles from the bridge. It got fixed this summer thanks to big coal suing the state.
