ARTBA’s “bad bridge” report

The American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) recently issued a report that analyzed the Department of Transportation’s National Bridge Inventory database and determined that there are nearly 56,000 structurally compromised roadway bridges across the U.S., with 1,900 of them are on the interstate highway system. On top of that, ARTBA said state transportation departments have identified 13,000 Interstate bridges that need replacement, widening or major reconstruction.
