How Safe are the Bridges in Philadelphia and across Pennsylvania?
With the collapse of the bridge in Minnesota many Pennsylvanians have been asking, ‘How safe are our bridges?’ One could infer since many of our bridges are generally going to be older, they may be in need of further inspection and repair than we previously thought.
Thank goodness we have PennDOT, Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, looking out after our interests. Our tax dollars already pay for this state run authority and each day they are out and about checking bridges and roads so we won’t have happen to us what happened in Minnesota.
PennDOT was recently asked how we were doing? Were there any bridges or structures with which we need to be concerned? PennDOT thought if they released any information it could cause un-do concern!
Oh! Crap! We must be in trouble. PennDOT won’t tell us how we are doing even though we pay the bills.
