No need to hide behind your little pics Toro, we know the truth about your distain for hardworking American farmers.
Go eat your cardboard now.
Maybe people would enjoy paying a few extra cents for the excise tax on gasoline to fix up more infrastructure.
I wasn't saying one way or another. I would however hazard that the majority would not want to pay any more for the gas than they're already accustomed to paying. How many bridges have collapsed in the past ten years? Compare that to new roadways and other construction which is where I think the majority of commuters would rather see the money spent.
I was listening on the NPR this morning someone saying there are something like 87,000 bridges in America - about a fifth of the total - that are "structurally deficient." That doesn't mean they're about to collapse, just that they're worn.
Minnesota spends more than most states on infrastructure.
Bridges in Minnesota are inspected every two years. Structurally deficient bridges are inspected every year. This one has been inspected every year since, if I recall correctly, 1990.
