It’s a rare example of interstate cooperation???

How many places in America, are there bridges which cross from one state to another? Too numerous to count.

But in those places, haven’t the states involved worked out issues of repair and maintenance for such bridges?

It’s hard to believe cooperation with interstate bridges is so rare.

I stand corrected if it turns out states repeatedly battle over who pays how much for which repairs on such bridges.

The new I-70 bridge connecting East St. Louis, IL to St. Louis, MO had such a battle. It was originally going to be a 6 to 8 lane toll bridge, but Illinois kept bitching about how East St. Louis commuters would have to pay tolls to work in the more prosperous St. Louis, so an agreement was eventually reached to build a free four-lane bridge.
