I was at a seminar for bridge maintenance today, being put on by the Texas Engineering Extension Service at the Waxahachie Civic Center. Learning a lot about the bridges we drive over every day. Lots of you tax dollars should be going to bridge maintenance, but it's not typically a priority for counties.
I bet you'd be surprised to see some of the wear and tear bridges see over their lifespan.
Might make you think twice about crossing some of the bridges you go over.
