In the coming months, we'll be looking at the state of America's infrastructure. A couple weeks ago we asked you to tell us about the aging bridges, highways, buildings in your towns and how they're affecting your lives. Many listeners drew our attention to the Alaskan Way Viaduct in Seattle. Some of you said it's in such bad shape you refuse to drive on it. The viaduct is a traffic artery a couple miles long that runs along Seattle's waterfront. Its dual levels were built 55 years ago. This weekend, it's closed and under inspection. We check in with Ron Paananen, the Deputy Corridors Director for the Washington State Department of Transportation.
