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.
Exactly. They might also need very rare materials to build a bifrost and a tremendous amount of power to put it together & start it up, maybe more power than they have at the moment.
