Bridge Conditions Have Improved Since 2013, But Are Worse Than in Other States
- In 2017, New York State was responsible for maintaining 8,470 bridges.**
- A bridge is considered structurally deficient if it has deterioration to one or more major components, but is not unsafe. In 2017, 8.5 percent of State-maintained bridges were rated structurally deficient. This is an improvement from 9.7 percent in 2013, but it compares unfavorably to the 5.3 percent share for all other states combined.
** Based upon the U.S. Federal Highway Administration’s National Bridge Inventory, we have included as State-maintained bridges all bridges where the owner is State, State Park, Other State or State Toll
