Cheers and jeers


Jeers: To the state Legislature, for failing to address Pennsylvania's crippled roads and bridges, leading our commonwealth to be ranked No. 1 Wednesday by CNBC as the state with the worst bridges in the nation. Pennsylvania topped the business news cable network's ranking with 26.5 percent of the commonwealth's bridges rated "structurally deficient," meaning the spans need rehabilitation or replacement. We are in good shape. According to PennDOT data, Northumberland County has the highest percentage of structurally deficient bridges in the Valley, with 6.2 percent; Snyder County is second, with 4.5 percent; followed by Union County with 4.1 percent and Montour County at 2.2 percent. But we are all Pennsylvanians. It is time for us to get it together and build some bridges.
