Bridge Conditions Have Improved Since 2018, But Are Worse Than in Other States

  • In 2022, New York State was responsible for maintaining 8,535 bridges.*
  • A bridge is considered in poor condition if it has deterioration to one or more major components. The fact that a bridge is in poor condition does not imply that it is unsafe or likely to collapse. A poor bridge, when left open to traffic, typically requires posting for weight limits, significant maintenance and repair to remain in service and eventual rehabilitation or replacement to address deficiencies. In 2022, 7.6 percent of State-maintained bridges were rated poor. This is an improvement from 7.9 percent in 2018, but it compares unfavorably to the 4.4 percent share for all other states combined.
