It is my opinion that our bridges should be completely safe and capable of handling current and future traffic loads. It has been stated that we have over 55,000 bridges that need immediate or scheduled repairs or replacements.
We should demand the use of only American made ores, steel, machinery and workers! It will bring new life to our mines and fire up our steel mills, foundries, and bring back American made construction and heavy equipment manufacturers. We demand action now, no more delays.
The direct benefit of repairing or replacing these bridges is not only the satisfaction of knowing you are driving on a safe bridge, but also this will stimulate our economy and employ hundreds of thousands if not millions of high paying middle class jobs.
