ShareThis1 in 9 U.S. bridges in need of repair 19 Jun 2013 More than one in nine bridges in the USA — at least 66,405, or 11% of the total — are structurally deficient, according to a new report. These are not rarely used, out-of-the way structures: Each day, Americans take 260 million trips over structurally deficient bridges, says the report from Transportation for America, a Washington, D.C.-based coalition that works to improve transportation. The structurally deficient bridges are 65 years old on average, and the Federal Highway Administration estimates that repairing them would cost $76 billion. [Right, but the sociopaths in the US government would rather fund the Syrian rebel cannibals.]
