Yesterday I put up a post about a report that was to be released today, the report is now public and it isn’t a pretty picture as noted by those who put it together.
And this report is only on the Bridges around this Country and broken down by States.
This is well known by many, especially us who work in the construction industry and understand what is built needs constant maintenance, even our military understands that with preventive maintenance programs
This has been ignored for way too long. With tens of thousands of construction workers laid off or on spotty contract jobs wondering what’s next. Thousand of contractors scrapping the bottom trying to inject projects. Engineers and architects, along with other construction white collar personal doing likewise, out of work or just hanging on.
Here’s the report:
The State of Our Nation’s Bridges
1 in 9 highway bridges in the U.S. are classified as “structurally deficient,” requiring significant maintenance, rehabilitation or replacement. Is your state doing a good or bad job at maintaining these vital pieces of infrastructure? Where are these bridges located? Our interactive map allows you to map all the deficient bridges within 10 miles of any U.S. address, view a national report and 51 state reports and a full national ranking of state bridge condition.

The Fix We’re in For: Bridges,Infrastructure
Just remember, the obstruction during the previous Congresses as the economy finally collapsed from the wall street capitalism. Just remember, and still going on, the condemnation of the new administration as to that collapse of the economy and millions of jobs. Just remember the yelling and screaming from this so called grassroots tea party, corporate funded, their own 24/7 propaganda cable channel leading our other media outlets into justifying this false rage and still trying to do so. Just remember the tea party candidates and any other still calling themselves republican, all pretty much on one of their main messages, Jobs, Jobs, Jobs,………..! Just remember up to the present day how little that’s mentioned but instead they’re trying to tear down what jobs there are and the people with them, from state to state, as well as destroy the rest of what they had started, the America that once led and did so with an envied workforce and economy.
Just remember what’s been going on the last some thirty years and who’s been doing what in the name of what once was but is no more!
They use the phrase “this is what America wants” they don’t say that it’s their ‘amerika’, it certainly isn’t ours and most certainly not the one I grew into in the first part of my time on this planet, and we pay them!
