I'm betting that many local governments and corporations decided it was cheaper to take the chance on a failure rather than spend the money to detect and fix what might be a problem; and the dice has been rolled a few too many times.

I haven't kept up with all my architecture and engineering news lately, so this link is a bit late --

about the chance for visual beauty with the new bridge.

Night landscape: Artist Scott Lloyd Anderson paints a nocturne as hard-hats fill the gap between the spans of the new I-35W bridge in Minneapolis with concrete. The old bridge collapsed during rush hour Aug. 1, 2007, killing 13 and injuring scores.
