It certainly isn’t an epidemic or chicken-little proportion Obama wants to make it out to be.
Some actually are though. The Hohn Bridge where I am actually is. Thanks to democrats largely, they were letting it go to hell in order that they could tear it down and have one less easy way in and out of Milwaukee for many south side residents.
Doyle and the State DOT let it rot and fall apart. Walker now has funds allocated to repair it and it’s a priority project.

Living in the rustbelt in northern NJ, I think there is an epidemic - in the Dem strongholds (which are also the oldest urban areas). The structures were built with Dem labor, and they want to rebuild them with Dem labor, but the funds have all been chased out by Dem taxes. As with Detroit (though on a lesser scale), there is simply no reason to rebuild anything in an area where a W-2 hasn’t been issued in decades.
The Dems vision for the socialist paradise of the future is to have the hardworking taxpayers, in whatever low-tax environment they’ve fled to, foot the bill for every basic need of every Dem voter in the Red (communist) states. It is the basis for ObamaCare, Social Security, unemployment extensions, and now infrastructure repair; they need to stop the natural human instinct to flee the high taxes that Dems bring, and make it so it isn’t worthwhile to flee.
Here in NJ each adult taxpayer is expected to pay 25% of the cost for a public school teacher, an illegal alien, and a welfare brood; if the taxpayers flee they’ll find a way to give the bill to Texans, Floridians, and such.
