Routing Around Dangerous Bridges

bridge collapse
I35-W Bridge Collapse of 2007 (USA today)

Here‘s a map showing bridge ratings around Minnesota. Many of which have gusset plates similar to those blamed in the bridge collapse last year in Minneapolis.

It would be interesting to see a web map routing app that allowed me to arbitrarily specify a URL of barriers. For example when I click the Directions button in Google Maps, it would offer me an option to specify a barriers URL. If there were a web service standard to support this, Google could then generate directions that avoid particular bridges.
