Hundreds of Connecticut Bridges Rated ‘Deficient’

By Ann Radelat

Washington – The Walk Bridge in Norwalk is not the only bridge in Connecticut that has problems by far. The percentage of all bridges in poor condition has been climbing since 2006.

According to the Federal Highway Administration’s national bridge inventory, nearly one in every 10 bridges in the state has been deemed structurally deficient, meaning 413 of the state’s 4,218 bridges in the inventory were deficient in 2013.

In addition, nearly one in four Connecticut bridges was deemed “functionally obsolete.” That means they are outdated and do not meet current standards required of new bridges.

A structurally deficient bridge isn’t unsafe, but at least one or more of it’s major components are deemed to be in poor condition.
