  • Finally an issue both parties are at fault for, no politician wants to rebuild infrastructure they want grandiose ribbon cuttings. Most of the public is too stupid to know that bridge needs to be rebuilt they just see inconvenience of the construction zone and say "it was fine when I drove over it last month."

    This has been ignored for far too long.
  • This is a fine world you boomers are leaving for the rest of us.
  • They just fixed all but one (small) bridge between me and work, thanks Obama!  FU Republicans!
  • Old news is old.
  • Whole lotta red states look retarded and their sheit's all farked up.
    Kommiefornia doesn't seem to be doing too bad even after spending 55 billion on illegal immigrants. Funny how that worked out, Republitards!

    /how am I doing?
  • What, no slideshow?
  • CDOT (Colorado DOT) seems to be pretty good at upkeep. Then again, if something catastrophic happens on I-70 it'll hurt the state's economy pretty well.

    I-70 is quite the feat of engineering, especially through Glenwood Canyon:

    Just watch out for rocks and boulders from above.

    Huh. I've never seen that before. Nice.

    Thanks for sharing.
  • Will someone PLEASE wake up Eisenhower, oh yeah, will someone PLAESE get a Voodoo Priest to wake up Eisenhower. He'll at least be far better than what we have.
  • "The American Road and Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) list of 55,710 deficient bridges"

    The real issue here is why the American Road and Transportation Builders Association built structurally deficient bridges in the first place. What are THEY going to do about it?
  • If elected President, it would be my plan to push policy to tax large corporations [As defined by an annual profit margin of over 1 million USD, and articles of incorporation on file.] that rely on truck-based shipping for their profit margins [Fed Ex, UPS, Amazon, Wal-Mart, Target, Sears, Macys, Swift, Con-Way, so on and so forth.] with that money specifically marked to maintain interstate highways, and bridges specifically in the interstate highway network, and establish funding to build at least two major arteries of high speed rail, Los Angeles to New York, and Houston to Chicago.

    I would also push policy to tax media networks, such as cable broadcast, internet service providers, telecommunications companies and again, large corporations that rely on internet communication for media streaming to begin the huge task of upgrading our internet infrastructure.

    Oh and health care? How about taxing the profits of pharmaceutical corporations, and any hospital with 500k or more in profit annually, with those funds going specifically to universal preventative and catastrophic emergency care? I mean, yeah, it sucks for people who get cancer, but at least you can go get a check up, or get someone to stop the bleeding, right?

    ... Yeah. Vote for me. It'll never happen, but boy, wouldn't it just make the news a little more interesting to hear an actual plan for a change? [Granted, a pretty insane plan that would piss a lot of people off, divide congress totally, and goes against the almighty theory of trickle down economics...]

    My mother's a retired hydrogeologist and her husband is a civil engineer. They both LOVE the canyon. There's also a walking/bike trail that goes through the whole canyon which gives you some nice views.

    While you're right overall, now is not the best time to laud California's infrastructure.
  • Necessary infrastructure repair, or as it was derided and done away with in Congress, pork.
  • I like round numbers, so I don't think we should do anything until we reach 100,000

    Sometimes the bridge is falling apart before the ribbon cutting, Please see the Bay Bridge in CA.

    sure they say it is fine now, but the steel is compromised, way before the expected life time (literally negative years of use before water was getting in).
  • Obviously now is the time to build a giant wall.

    That will last forever. Right?
  • Notabunny: I like round numbers, so I don't think we should do anything until we reach 100,000


    But there's an odd number of zeroes, so make it a 1,000,000.

    You're going to tax Taylor Swift extra?  Well you can Fark right off.  No vote for you!
  • Pfft, fake news story from a fake news agency.  Our bridges are safe.  It is all the illegal immigrants who are unsafe, with all their drugs and gangs and rapists.  That is why we have to build a wall, to keep them out, and to keep them off of our bridges!
  • What does deficient mean? No longer matching design? Or design no longer current code? We might be looking at the same shenanigans that put half of America on cholesterol and/or blood pressure meds, change the standards until there's something to sell.

    That can't be right. There's no Robert Byrd Memorial Road Maintenance Fund, is there?
