Car Connection: Shockingly High Number of U.S. Bridges Substandard, Still
From Car Connection:
...A "shockingly high number"--25.7 percent--of America's 598,000 bridges are either structurally deficient or functionally obsolete. The highest percentage in the nation (55 percent) belongs to the District of Columbia, followed by Rhode Island (53 percent), Pennsylvania (39 percent), Hawaii (38 percent), and New York (37 percent).
“Investing money in our roads and bridges today saves money in the long run. It also builds the foundation for our 21st century economy.”
