Venkatesh Kodur, professor of civil engineering at MSU, said state officials might need to rethink highway maintenance.He said the bridge collapse points to the need for the states to become more vigilant in maintaining its aging network of highways and bridges.
"It's a wake-up call," Kodur said.
Kodur stressed it's too early to pinpoint the reasons why the bridge collapsed, but noted that concrete and steel, like everything, deteriorates over time.He said he did not know whether extreme heat conditions might have contributed to the collapse.
Kodur, an expert on infrastructure, was among a group of engineers who prepared a report on the 2001 collapse of the World Trade Center towers for the U.S. Congress.
He said U.S. bridges traditionally have been better constructed than ones in Europe because the American bridges carry more traffic.

"The good quality air goes down because there is carbon monoxide and other things which are produced due to the combustion," explains Venkatesh Kodur of MSU's Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering.
