Deteriorated Bridges at Risk of Collapse
KENTUCKY (WKRC) -- Federal inspectors say more than 100 bridges in Kentucky are so deteriorated they are at risk of collapsing.
Heavier traffic and a heavier traffic flow are largely to blame.
All bridges are rated in two categories, structurally deficient or fracture critical.
In Kentucky, the latest federal inventory shows 145 bridges in the red-flag situation but state officials say 16 of those spans are no longer in both categories.
