Wear and tear threatens US bridges

Iconic Brooklyn Bridge is one of about 8,000 bridges classified as susceptible to collapse.

    The Brooklyn Bridge is one of the most famous landmarks in the United States, but it is slipping into a dangerous state of disrepair.

    The 131-year-old structure is just one of thousands of bridges across the US classified as susceptible to collapse due to wear and tear.
