T4America Bridge Report Clips

Our friends at Transportation for America recently released a report about the state of bridges in America.  WSDOT Secretary Paula Hammond was featured on the tele-briefing roll out of the report yesterday.

The report found that 5% of Washington's bridges are structurally deficient but we are the 6th best state in the nation when it comes to bridge maintenance and repair.

Here are some local clips covering the report that are worth a read:
