Gordon's Notes: Bridges: 77,000 deficient, 750 have I-35W designRecently, our Republican governor managed to have all MN bridge ratings declared "top secret". The ratings could help the terrorists, you see.
... I thought a bit more about how Google could accelerate the infrastructure review. A 'route around risky bridge' option for Google Map directions would concentrate minds wonderfully. One can readily imagine icons for bridges with the I-35W design and risk designation...
I have to hand it to Pawlenty. He waited a few weeks to give the public time to completely forget about the bridge, then he made it impossible for anyone to track the state of MN bridges.
That should help block a gasoline tax. Our local media have been playing dead of course, they know almost no-one is paying attention.
