Officials in Ann Arbor, Mich., began monitoring the East Stadium Boulevard bridge last month after they learned that one of the bridge's beams was sagging by nearly one inch. Workers check underneath the bridge weekly for additional displacement of the fifth beam, and traffic has been rerouted to allow the beam to stabilize. If the beam does not show any additional sagging in six to eight weeks, officials will scale back inspections to every other week.
