Study: More than 800 Georgia Bridges ‘Structurally Deficient’ | WABE 90.1 FM

Every day, more than two million people travel across Georgia bridges that are deemed “structurally deficient,” according to a new study by a construction trade group.

The study by the American Road and Transportation Builders Association says 835 Georgia bridges, or about six percent, have at least one key component in poor condition.

Of those 835 bridges, the three most heavily traveled bridges are in the metro-Atlanta area, each with more than 90,000 crossings per day.

“It’s not a surprise to us,” said Natalie Dale, spokesperson for the Georgia Department of Transportation.
