Last September, Mike Peterson was driving airport shuttle passengers in Salt Lake City as he has been doing for about 20 years when a large chunk of concrete fell from the overpass he was driving under onto his car, crushing its hood.
The government is spending billions of dollars to fix these bridges, but analysts say the problem is so bad that at the present pace, it will take 21 years to fix every bridge.
