Those bridges have been inspected - an initial review weeks ago, and a more detailed inspection just in the last couple of weeks. The detailed inspections are the ones that specifically identified the structural issues (in the case of the Idlewild bridge its upstream girder web damage), and that is what led to the weight limits on those bridges.
We know that the weight limit is a significant issue. We have a team working on the next steps for those structures - either repair or use of a temporary bridge, and the Idlewild bridge is on our list.
Hope that helps. Martina
