The machinery of the Bifrost is obviously very sophisticated, so it's reasonable to assume that it would take a while to rebuild or fabricate from scratch, even with Odin's resources.
Consider the amount of resources, technical expertise, time and money it took to build the Large Hadron Collider/CERN facility. Now imagine how long it would take to rebuild the LHC/CERN if, perchance, it were to be blown up. That's the sort of task facing Odin and the Asgardians with regards to the Bifrost, in my view.

We Midgardians apparently required 10 years to build the Large Hadron Collider. So if that's a benchmark, after only 2.5 years, it may not even look like they've made progress on a rebuild.
I remember on how Kevin Feige mentioned on how Thor destroying the bridge back in his solo film had consequences for the nine realms, implying that since Asgard was no longer able to travel as freely to the other realms, they weren't able to maintain the order.
I wonder though, if word got out on how Loki tried to destroy the Frost Giants planet by using the Frost Bridge, wouldn't that make every other realm very weary of the Asgardians, let alone them building another machine like that. Sure, Odin would have no intentions of using the Bi-Frost like that, but would everyone else think so? By all accounts the Bi Frost is like a way of maintaining somewhat of a militaristic order on everyone; almost like Odin's "death star" if you will.lol
