A study by the American Road and Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) concluded that of the 609,539 bridges across the United States, 58,495 bridges, a span of 1,340 miles, are structurally deficient. The U.S. Department of Transportation estimates the repair and replacement of these bridges would cost $115 billion, and may take 21 years to complete based on the current funding levels.
