bridge maintenance:

    Of 77 bridges in Seattle, only 22 are in good condition, a city audit found. “Over the past 14 years, the average amount SDOT spent on bridge maintenance was $6.6 million annually,” city auditors wrote. “However, according to knowledgeable SDOT officials, the City is not spending enough to keep its bridges in good condition and avoid costly future repairs.” The Seattle Department of Transportation’s $739 million budget makes up about 12 percent of Seattle’s $6 billion total budget. Department officials announced in June that it has canceled more than $58 million in transportation projects in light of the city’s $25 million deficit brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions put in place to slow its spread....
    GENOA, Italy (AP) — Italy's president headed to Genoa for an evening ceremony Monday to inaugurate a replacement bridge, but the families of those killed when the Morandi Bridge collapsed are boycotting the event, along with the firefighters who had to pull the dead from the debris. Two years ago this month, a stretch of roadbed collapsed on the city's Morandi Bridge, sending cars and trucks plunging down to the dry riverbed below and killing 43 people. The new bridge — a key artery for the northern Italian city — was built with round-the-clock construction, even during the COVID-19 pandemic. Families of the dead agreed to meet the president on the sidelines but they won’t participate in the ceremony. They’re...

    PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) — A bridge connecting Wickliffe, Kentucky, and Cairo, Illinois, will close Saturday for extensive maintenance, meaning a long detour for those traveling between the cities, officials said. The U.S. 51 Ohio River “Cairo” Bridge is scheduled to remain closed for about a month so that crews can work along a nearly 2-mile (3.2-kilometer) section of the Kentucky approach levee and perform critical work on the bridge deck, a statement from the Kentucky Cabinet for Transportation said. The normal 5-mile (8-kilometer) route between the cities will become an 80-mile (129 kilometer) trip as vehicles are detoured to the Interstate 24 Ohio River Bridge at Paducah, officials said. Motorists can reduce the detour by adjusting their route before getting...
