Hey America, you may have been too busy delighting in the fruits of our thousand-year Mesopotamian adventure and rolling around on piles of strong dollars to notice our nation’s crumbling infrastructure. But thanks to Popular Mechanics, you can now find out which massive highway interchange, bridge, dam or waterway near you is about to collapse! And guess which proud metropolitan area earns not one but two spots on this coveted Top Ten list? Shame on you, Barack Obama!
A Super Special Report lists the following ten structures as the most dire threats to America:
1. Circle Interchange, Chicago
2. Brooklyn Bridge, New York
3. Canal Lock, New Orleans
4. Atlanta water system
5. Alaskan Way Viaduct, Seattle
6. Lake Okeechobee, Florida
7. Dover Bridge, Bonner County, Idaho
8. Wolf Creek Dam, Kentucky
9. Sacramento River Levees, California
10. O’Hare International Airport, Chicago
Just among these ten horrors there are tales of hanging rebar, dire threats of flooding, dire threats of drought, massive traffic congestion, and near-collisions on clogged runways. Why won’t Barack Obama apologize for this civic disgrace?
