Franken Backs Bridge Repair

Minnesota Senator Al Franken says bridges in the Brainerd Lakes Area in need of repair would benefit from President Obama's jobs bill. 

Minnesota's junior Senator says more than one thousand state bridges are structurally deficient, and rebuilding those bridges would put thousands of Minnesotans back to work.

Franken released a study that said 17 bridges located in Crow Wing, Cass and Aitkin counties are structurally deficient.  The study says that, on average, 65 hundred cars cross those bridges daily. 

Senator Franken says Minnesota has so many men and women in construction who are on the bench, and so many projects in need of their skills, they should get them back to work rebuilding roads and bridges across the state that are in need of repair.
