Sometimes it is due to an isolated major problem not related to the overall bridge. Such as a bearing failure, which after its fixed the bridge would jump back up in rating. Or perhaps a single major event like a flood event created a major scour issue that didn't exist before. Not sure of this bridge's history.

How on earth does a bridge go from Good Deck/Good Superstructure/Fair Substructure to shut down?!
