Around the country, state officials are taking a closer look at their bridges.
Governors are scrambling to conduct bridge inspections in the aftermath of yesterday's collapse of a Mississippi River span in Minnesota.
In Missouri and Massachusetts, officials have identified bridges similar to the one that collapsed. Missouri has eleven so-called truss bridges. They'll be examined first.
In New Jersey, Governor Jon Corzine says officials plan to evaluate all 64-hundred bridges, no matter whether they're maintained by state, local or federal governments.
According to a report from the Federal Highway Administration, nearly 13 percent of the nation's bridges were classified as "structurally deficient" in 2004 - meaning they are deteriorating.
