Bridges Across Pa Need Urgent Repair

04.25.14 | Terry Diener

An analysis of recent federal data has found more than 63,000 bridges across the United States are in urgent need of repair, with Pennsylvania having the most.
The report, released on Thursday by the American Road and Transportation Builders Association, warned that the dangerous bridges are used some 250 million times a day by trucks, school buses, passenger cars and other vehicles. Most of the aging, structurally compromised structures are part of the interstate highway system. Pennsylvania's 5,218 deficient bridges topped the list, followed by Iowa, Oklahoma, Missouri and California.
