The New York State Department of Transportation oversees more than 17,000 bridges across the state. It is responsible for making sure all the highway bridges in the state are inspected following state and federal mandates. NYSDOT inspects its own highway bridges, as well as highway bridges owned by localities, railroads and commissions that do not collect tolls.
The following list shows each bridge in the state along with information about when they were last inspected and the rating that each bridge received on a scale of zero to seven. The NYSDOT considers any bridge with a rating under 5.0 to be deficient. Roughly one-third of the bridges they inspected received ratings of 5.0 or below. Additionally, bridges are given a status of Structurally Deficient (SD), Functionally Obsolete (FO), or Neither (N). For more details, visit the NYSDOT Bridge Data website.
