No, it's a load of crap that our environment makes this impossible. There are 120 year old bridges that have stood for that long with basically zero maintenance all over Chicago being constantly blasted by salt.

Paint is to cover up lazy concrete work and stretch landlords maintenance dollars. Also because Americans have been trained to believe concrete is an ugly material.
