Default Re: HUGE Bridge Collapse in Minneapolis

out here in Los Angeles, restaurants get graded A-F, they have to show the grade out the window.

after reading this, maybe they should do that for our bridges.

A federal database, however, showed the 40-year-old bridge had been rated as "structurally deficient" in 2005 and possibly in need of replacement, the Star Tribune reported citing the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Bridge Inventory.

The White House also confirmed the 2005 inspection. White House press secretary Tony Snow said the span rated 50 on a scale of 120 for structural stability.
