$16.5 Million to Repair I-85

The bridge that collapsed on a section of Interstate 85 near Atlanta has an estimated price tag of $16.5 million to rebuild. The Georgia Department of Transportation has set a June 15 deadline for its completion. The federal government is expected to pay for 90% of the costs. The bridge was set afire March 30 by a homeless man. The blaze was so intense that it melted steel and concrete.
