Study: Hawaii has among the fewest bridge problems

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

Hawaii is among five states with the fewest structurally deficient bridges, according to data from a new government report.

The American Road & Transportation Builders Association analyzed U.S. Department of Transportation data and found that with 144 structurally deficient bridges, Hawaii is among five states with the fewest bridge problems needing to be addressed. Other states in the bottom four are Alaska (133),  Utah (117), Delaware (56), and with the fewest, Nevada (36).

States with the highest numbers of structurally deficient bridges are Pennsylvania (5,218), Iowa (5,043), Oklahoma (4,227), Missouri (3,357) and California (2,769).

The association found that the 250 most heavily crossed structurally deficient bridges are on urban interstate highways, especially in California, and that with one exception all are at least 39 years old.

The ARTBA expressed concern that as states face a slowdown in reimbursements for approved federal-aid highway projects, there will be no Highway Trust Fund support for new roads, bridges, or public transportation projects during fiscal year 2015.
