Email

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota transportation official says half of the bridges rated deficient following the collapse of the Interstate 35W bridge will be repaired or replaced by the end of this construction season.

The head of the Department of Transportation bridge inspections, Nancy Daubenberger, says about 60 of the 120 deficient bridges will be done. She says about $2 billion was set aside to fund the bridge projects.
