Finding the story: Bridges

  • Event: 2016 CAR Conference
  • Speaker: Elizabeth Lucas of Kaiser Health News
  • Date/Time: Sunday, Mar. 13 at 11:30am
  • Location: Denver I
  • Audio file: No audio file available.

Every state has bridges: how safe are yours? This is a question that appeals to everyone (we all drive and/or walk on bridges), and the National Bridge Inventory can help you answer it. In this session we'll dive into the data for Colorado, discuss additional sources, and sketch out stories that work in any city. ​

To get the most from this session, you should have some experience working with data in spreadsheets.
