"The First Amendment says that you can say whatever you want. However, decency and common sense require that one carefully consider their words and ideas before opening their mouth (or hitting that keyboard). There are too many people in America who think the First Amendment is a license to simply be outrageous." -- Michael Rivero

Baltimore will undertake a significant infrastructure project after the Francis Scott Key Bridge collapses. Maryland officials have laid out a timeline and cost estimate for reconstructing the bridge, which is crucial for the area’s economy and transportation system.

The state of Maryland has set an ambitious goal to rebuild the bridge in just over four years. The project is expected to start soon, with completion targeted for the fall of 2028. However, this timeline may change as the project progresses and factors such as weather, engineering challenges, and unforeseen circumstances come into play.

The cost of the reconstruction is a significant concern, estimated to be between $1.7 billion and $1.9 billion. However, these figures are not final and could change as more detailed engineering information becomes available. The projected cost includes building the new structure and the salvage operations needed after the collapse.
