To answer your question - the funding for the bridge should be left up to the state. If the state has no money, yes --- "Sorry bud, no money" is the answer. Close the road, divert traffic, and put the bridge reconstruction on the list of things for the future. Why are federal dollars needed here again? Shovel ready jobs? No... that didn't work already, twice. I'd be more interested in finding out how such a poorly designed and constructed bridge was inspected and who let such a bridge be used by the public given such harm could befall that public.
