The project calls for the replacement of only loose rivets and those with 25% or more head loss, not ALL the rivots.

There is a big catch: They are removing every single rivet on every single gusset plate on the entire bridge and replacing those with bolts. Replacing selected failed rivets with bolts is a minor alteration, but replacing all the rivets so that nobody will be able to tell this bridge originally had riveted connections is a significant alteration.
