Bridge Problems

Transportation For America is a transportation advocacy group that recently completed a study that shared some scary statistics on the state of California bridges, NBC Bay Area reports. The study found that one in five Bay Area bridges is "structurally deficient," and in dire need of repairs. "The era of building new highways is over," Stuart Cohen, TransForm's executive director said. "Federal transportation funding needs to focus on fixing what we already have and then expanding only in ways that reduce our dependence on oil, like better public transportation, biking, and walking options."
