New Study Shows That St. Louis County Has the Most Structurally Deficient Bridges in the State
An alarming new study has been released about vehicle bridges in the state of Minnesota, and St. Louis County has the most in need of repair with 102.
Transportation for America has released a bridge report and they found that 830 bridges in the state of Minnesota are in urgent need of repair or replacement. Of the 12,961 bridges in the state more than half of them are 50 years old and older.

Unfortunately this is not an easy fix as both political parties scramble to figure out how to pay for these aging structures.
