State Official: Springfield Bridge Is Safe and Sound

State officials say there’s nothing to worry about… even though 19,000 cars a day drive over a Springfield bridge rated as “structurally deficient.”


An IDOT engineer in charge of bridges says if a bridge is open, it’s safe to drive on.


Carl Puzey, in an interview for the 970 WMAY News Feed, says the bridge in question, on Chatham Road north of Wabash, has been inspected and is sound, although its age does mean regular maintenance is essential.


More than a dozen Springfield bridges have some degree of structural deficiency.
