Ed, the inspections show minor problems, nothing that can't be repaired. There is no real retirement date for the bridge as long as it passes inspections. All the talk about design life and cars per hour are just talk. I am an engineer and everything has a design life and economic life. If a barge hit the bridge, it would be closed tomorrow. If nothing unusual happens and the bridge is maintained, it could last over a hundred years. It is a matter of maintenance costs, which are paid by state and local gov'ts vs the feds and state who pay a large portion of bridge replacement costs.We have marches for tax day but the same are not standing up to say we don't want money wasted on "our" local bridge.
