LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - La Crosse's bridges will be coming under scrutiny again.
Every two years the city pays a company to do a thorough inspection of the 18 bridges in the city. The inspection is required by the state Department of Transportation.
City officials aren't worried about anything major being found.
"Our bridges are in very, very, very good shape. Most of the findings of the inspector are more maintenance-related type issues. We very seldom have any significant structural issues," said Director of Public Works Dale Hexom.
Hexom says the most common issues found in the inspections are related to pavement or expansion joints.
