More than 1000 MI bridges in poor condition

According to a report from the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA), the 198 bridges in North Carolina have been identified by state officials as needing fix, which will cost an estimated $28 million.

Pennsylvania actually improved from the 2016 report, with 4,506 bridges deemed "structurally deficient" this year, as opposed to 4,783 last year.

The American Road and Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) list of 55,710 deficient bridges includes high-profile spans such as Throgs Neck in New York, Yankee Doodle in CT and Memorial Bridge in Washington, D.C.

The top 15 most traveled structurally deficient bridges in the state were all separate portions of I-95 in Philadelphia, all of which were built before 1972. State transportation departments have identified 13,000 Interstate bridges that need replacement, widening or major reconstruction.

They're a familiar sight on every commute, but now a new study says thousands of American bridges are in disrepair. If that's all the improvement that can be gained in 12 months, the group says it would take more than 20 years to improve or replace all of the bridges on the list.

"America's highway network is woefully underperforming", Black said. "It is outdated, overused, underfunded and in desperate need of modernization", said Alison Premo Black, chief economist of ARTBA. Bridges are rated on a scale of one to nine for their soundness, and a rating of four or below puts it in the deficient category.

The study also found that 14 percent of MI bridges or 1,581 are considered to be obsolete, meaning their design does not meet current guidelines.

Other bridges in our area in the report included I-271 north/southbound over Wilson Mills Road, and I-77 over Market Cleveland in Stark County. Nevada, Delaware, and Hawaii have the fewest.
