A magazine ranking the governor won't be touting

Posted by David Postman

Dan Savage points us to this in Popular Mechanics.

After an earthquake in 2001 damaged the Alaskan Way Viaduct, a traffic artery in Seattle, inspectors found that some supports had subsided 5 in., weakening the structure. Options included fixing the elevated roadway and replacing it with a tunnel or improved surface roads. There’s still no decision. Meanwhile, as many as 110,000 vehicles travel on the compromised structure each day.

The viaduct is No. 5 on the magazine's list of “The 10 Pieces of U.S. Infrastructure We Must Fix Now."
