ODESSA- According to a 2006 Federal Audit, Texas failed to put up maximum weight limit signs on decaying bridges. After the deadly bridge collapse in Minneapolis bridges all over the country including 50,000 in Texas have come scrutiny. Here in West Texas, Texas Department of Transportation, Public Information officer in the Odessa District Glen Larum says the bridges here are completely safe.
"Our engineers and the people that look at bridges, their families cross those bridges too, so we're not taking any chances," said Larum, "We inspect every bridge, on a regular basis. We look at everything about the bridge. If a bridge is structurally unsafe it will be closed."
