we obtained the list to find out which bridges are on and it why it's taking so long to get them repaired. >> reporter: here in california thousands of highway bridges are rated structurally deficient in the national bridges inventory. the bridge on highway 1 was not one of them. this big bridge was rated good, not in need of anylinter deluges february. sky drone five got a look at the buckling bridge. can cal trans decided it was beyond repair and began to tear down a bridge that had gone from good to unsafe in a matter of weeks. but many more are on cal trans's list to be fixed. >> how many are we talking about? >> thousands. >> he's talking about the thousands of bridges rated structurally deficient. >> we're putting more and more wear and tear on our highways and bridges they need more and

structurally deficient on its most recent inspection. most residents never noticed when crossing the bridge. >> don't talk about it, do it. >> many of the bridges are owned by cities or counties, not the state. it comes down to the cities to prioritize where to spend their money on roads and bridges that need to be fixed. >> it's cracked like somebody broke it with an axe. >> she walks across the the bridge daily to get to work. it needs seismic retro fitting and running directly under it is a 16-inch pg&e pipeline which they last inspected in 2013. >> for the last 20 years that bridge has been on oakland's list of bridges that need to be fixed or repairs. but city engineers tell us it will take another three years before they even start work on this bridge because they have to go through the planning and environmental reviews.

very difficult decisions. >> so according to the american society of engineers if a bridge isn't safe it will be closed. if a bridge is rated structurally deficient it means it has to be inspected on a regular basis. you can see sand blew all over the road today forcing crews to shut it down. it's expected to be cleaned up sometime tomorrow. in yosemite tonight electronic signs are posted saying no rafting allowed. fast meting snow is also swamping dozens of units at a camp for yosemite workers. park rangers say the conditions could stick around well into next month. and check out south lake tahoe, a beautiful yet chilly spring scene. this was sent in from a bay area viewer on vacation up there. the snow has since torpid off up there after leaving a few inches
