To be more precise, the cost of repairing the bridge was $250 a day. That seems like a princely sum, but if the spans are reused it might bring the cost down.

Reusing the spans likely doesn't save that much. The biggest cost is likely the abutments and approaches, and in fact forcing the design to be a certain way just to reuse the spans might impose additional engineering costs. So, great if it works, but not a big factor either way.
