The real question is why the "not deficient" ratings if it had to be replaced ... Right now! This minute! In reality the county DOT did not want to get up out of their comfy chairs and actually do preventive maintenance by clearing the pier. Much easier to let it decay so they can get a new fancy bridge that looks like crap but they do not have to do anything for 20 years when that one crumbles because they did not want to maintain either. And on it goes.
