St. Paul, Minn. — A report released for the anniversary of the collapse of the I-35W bridge in Minneapolis says the nation's bridges are in bad shape.
The report was produced by the American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials. The organization estimates that nearly a quarter of all bridges are in need of major repair or replacement. The money for those repairs doesn't exist.
Minnesota Public Radio's Sea Stachura joined "All Things Considered" host Tom Crann to talk about the report.
