A bridge collapsed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Friday morning, coincidentally only two miles away from where President Biden was scheduled to give a speech on the importance of upgrading American infrastructure. No one was killed in the collapse, but it’s scary to think about how there are tens of thousands of bridges around the country that have been given the same “poor” grading for structural integrity as the one in Pittsburgh.
Biden said that “the idea that we have been so far behind on infrastructure, for so many years — it's just mind-boggling. We're going to fix them all. Not a joke, this is going to be a gigantic change.” Back in November, Biden signed into law the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act which will allocate $550 billion in newly authorized spending to repair crumbling infrastructure across the country. This is a long time coming and hopefully, it will serve to prevent future tragedies like what was narrowly avoided in Pittsburgh last week.
