With the average age of bridges on&nbsp;the state system well over 50, <a href="http://www.dot.state.pa.us/Internet/web.nsf/Secondary?OpenFrameset&amp;Frame=main&amp;src=InfoBridge?openform">PennDOT&nbsp;</a>must evaluate the numerous bridges and consider the needs and costs of the state infrastructure.&nbsp; &nbsp;According the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, Allegheny County has 2,247 bridges yet many of them are categorized as structurally deficient or functionally obsolete.</p><p> Tue, 04 Jun 2013 20:16:45 +0000 Katherine Blackley 10767 at http://wesa.fm Bridges Around the State Evaluated by PennDOT
