According to a USA TODAY article written by Marisol Bello, a bridge on the Interstate Highway 5 – located in Washington State – has collapsed as a result of aging and weakened infrastructure. While there was no loss of life, the incident begs the question: How safe are we from the negligence of others?
According to the article, the Federal Highway Administration concluded that 11% of our nation’s bridges are structurally deficient – requiring regular inspection and repair. Without this proper maintenance, human lives are indeed in danger. The Interstate Highway 5 was apparently inspected last in November of 2012, receiving a sufficiency rating of 48 out of 100.
