Yesterday's bridge collapse calls our attention again to the state's transportation infrastructure - roads, bridges, and so on. Seattle Times editorial writer provides some good detail, links and commentary. It looks like the state transportation budget won't be further stressed.
We can appreciate the relatively light impact of the I-5 bridge collapse while also asking pertinent questions about the efficacy of all our structures. At least money won’t necessarily be a problem, Rep. Rick Larsen, issued a statement this morning saying that he had talked with Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. Secretary LaHood confirmed that the Department of Transportation has emergency funds available to aid repairs.
I didn't get around to posting a link to the 2013 Report Card for Washington's Infrastructure when it came out earlier this year. Seems timely now.
