Progress slow in bridge repairs across the U.S.

"A year after the worst U.S. bridge collapse in a generation brought calls for immediate repairs to other spans, two of every three of the busiest problem bridges in each state — carrying nearly 40 million vehicles a day — have had no work beyond regular maintenance," report Robert Tanner, Steve Karnowski and Frank Bass of the Associated Press. Officials attribute the lack of progress to bureaucratic red tape, soaring construction costs, and budget shortfalls among other things.
