ARTBA: Over 58,495 Structurally Deficient Bridges in the U.S. Are in Need of Repair

Posted by Joe Gentle on Monday, February 22nd, 2016

ARTBA logoThe American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) has released a visual report on the state of bridges in the U.S. Using data from the FHWA’s 2015 National Bridge Inventory, ARTBA’s charts and infographics effectively visualize the scope of the problem, which is highly apparent in our nation’s most densely populated regions.

According to ARTBA, “There are nearly 204 million daily crossings on 58,495 U.S. structurally deficient bridges in need of repair.” The term structurally deficient refers to any bridge wherein “one or more of the key bridge elements, such as the deck, superstructure or substructure, is considered to be in ‘poor’ or worse condition.” The most-trafficked bridge on the list, in Los Angeles, CA, carries nearly 300,000 passengers each day.

ARTBA’s interactive portal allows you to view data specific to each state, as well as several national-rankings lists and a map detailing the percentage of bridge funding provided by federal sources.
