    Bridge5things_small.pngThe condition of our state’s transportation system is something that we as Oregonians care about. Well-maintained roads and bridges are key pieces of our transportation infrastructure. A new infographic explains simply and visually the five things you need to know about Oregon bridges. Two new reports, the Seismic Plus report and the Rough Roads Ahead report, provide detailed information about the challenges we face and offer suggestions for addressing those challenges.
