Across the nation, between 80,000 and 100,000 bridges are structurally deficient and in immediate need of replacement. Between 220,000 amd 250,000 bridges are presently in need of attention before they become structurally deficient. In an effort to determine what is being done locally to correct the bridge problem, how many bridges are in dire need of attention, and how replacement/repair programs are being funded, several road and street departments across the country were recently surveyed. The article presents the results of the survey, with specific references to various state problems and programs.
