Well, gravity for one.

Most of American (North) infrastructure is in poor condition. No one likes to spend money on unsexy repair / rehab projects. And it takes lots of money to fix stuff that big and heavy and concrete and steel. Sadly, it usually takes something like an overpass collapse or a dam failure to get peoples attention for about 15 minutes.

Until it's OK to forget about it again.
