Supply Chain Graphic of the Week: Reader Submission on the Sorry State of US Bridges

 

Recent Study by Transportation for America Says almost 70,000 US Bridges are in Need of Signficant Repair; SCDigest Reader Creates Great Infographic to Summarize the Danger

 
     
 

By SCDigest Editorial Staff

 
 

 

In a first for us, an SCDigest reader is providing our Supply Chain Graphic of the Week. It comes from Marly Hazen of CTSI-Global, who sent us an "Infographic" she created on the disastrous condition of US bridges, based on a recent report on the subject by the Transportation for America.

Marly's cool inforgraphic is below.

Transportation for America says that 69,223 bridges — 11.5% of total highway bridges in the US — are classified as "structurally deficient," requiring significant maintenance, rehabilitation or replacement.

There is a lot more information on the organization's web site, which can be found here: Transportation for America Bridge Study.

 

Thanks to Marly for pointing this out. The St. Paul bridged collapsed with tragic results in 2007 - and the issue has lost interest since then, unfortunately.

You can learn more on the issue from CTSI-Global here.
