1 in 12 Illinois Bridges May Be ''Structurally Deficient''

Here’s a number that could have you white-knuckling the steering wheel. 


A transportation safety group claims that 1 in 12 Illinois bridges are “structurally deficient,” putting them at risk of collapse.  The group Transportation for America says more than 2300 Illinois bridges are in need of extensive maintenance work… or should be replaced entirely. 


Despite those numbers, Illinois actually scores better than most states… 34 others had a higher percentage of potentially dangerous bridges.
