Has everyone forgotten about our Bridges?

Back when that bridge collapsed, everyone was up in arms about our local bridges. Chesapeake even had one that ranked 2 out of 100. Then they decided that for ‘security purposes’ the bridge ratings would not be released any longer. As a recap, the 22nd St. Bridge got a 2, the Gilmerton got a 3, and the Jordan got a 4. If you might recall, the I64 bridge at Willoughby got an 81.3. Keeping the I64 rating in mind, here is a sample of what an 81 gets you:

Notice the broken concrete and visible substructure? I think that it is time to demand that these problems are looked into again before a tragic accident happens here.
