3. What worries me is that the I-55 bridge that is now taking all of that traffic

Was built in 1949 - so it is MUCH older than the I-40 bridge. I hope the I-55 bridge has been inspected and will continue to be inspected as it takes a much larger load than was intended when it was built 70 years ago.
