The bridge is usable to light to medium traffic, not military/heavy vehicles.

Tbf, a lot of light and medium could be called military traffic, but the bridge is mostly down.

Downing both kherson bridges would complicate supply for the west bank immensly. Isw asses culmination of the russian offensive campaign in the next weeks. If ukraine wants to start a major counteroffensive in the south, it woulf be about time.
