State to overhaul 11 bridges

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The state of New Mexico is overhauling 11 bridges this year and has plans to replace three dozen bridges next year.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports 55 bridges out of almost 3,000 state-owned bridges are due for preventive maintenance, such as replacing deck joints, deck sealing and painting.

Nearly 300 more bridges around New Mexico were listed as structurally deficient in the 2013 national bridge inventory and it will cost millions of dollars to fix them all.
