The most dangerous bridge in every US state

Over five months after the White House sent President Donald Trump’s infrastructure plan to Capitol Hill, the proposal has stalled among Congress members on both sides of the aisle.

Trump’s plan proposes allocating $200 billion in grants to spur infrastructure investment from private businesses and local governments, and the Trump administration expects those matching efforts to raise the value of the investments to $1.5 trillion.

In late May, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Congress will likely not pass the massive plan this year.

One of the plan’s goals is to repair and rebuild America’s bridges, which received a C+ grade in the American Society of Civil Engineers’ most recent Infrastructure Report Card. (Overall, US infrastructure scored a D+, and the ASCE estimates the country needs to spend $4.5 trillion by 2025 to improve its roads, bridges, dams, airports, and more.)

Every state has at least one structurally deficient bridge, which the US Department of Transportation (DOT) defines as when one or more key bridge components (e.g. the deck, superstructure, or substructure) is in “poor” condition. There are 185 million daily crossings on nearly 56,000 structurally deficient US bridges, according to the American Road and Transportation Builders Association.

Using 2016 data from theUS Federal Highway Administration, Auto Insurance Center found the most structurally deficient bridge – based on the highest number of components in poor or worse condition – in each state and Washington, DC.
