2015 Bridge Conditions: Crossing That Bridge When We Get To It

Transportation For America has taken USDOT data on bridges and mapped them out so they are viewable in a 10 mile radius from any given address. The bridges within that 10 radius are then shown based on their ranking. Clicking on an individual bridge gives you a popup explaining the ranking.

Given that 1 in 9 bridges in the U.S. is structurally deficient, requiring significant repairs, maintenance or replacement. You can find out which bridges near you are deemed structurally deficient using the 2015 Bridge Conditions map from Transportation For America.
