Washington, D.C. - A new report just out says 12 percent of bridges in the Central New York area are in poor or structurally deficient condition.
TRIP, a national transportation research group based in Washington D.C., reports that of the 875 bridges in the Syracuse area, which is defined as Onondaga, Oswego and Madison counties, 101 have been rated poor or structurally deficient.
Those 101 bridges, which include parts of I-81, I-690 and the New York State Thruway, carry over 911 thousand vehicles a day according to the report.
The report says the most heavily trafficked bridge that’s in poor condition is the I-690 bridge over North Townsend Street in downtown Syracuse.
