Pennsylvania actually improved from the 2016 report, with 4,506 bridges deemed "structurally deficient" this year, as opposed to 4,783 last year.
Once again, Pennsylvania is among the nation's leaders in structurally deficient bridges, according to an annual report.

The top three most traveled deficient bridges in the state are in Union and Essex Counties, according to the study.
Although structurally deficient bridges may still be safe to drive on, they have defects or fix needs that can cause speed or weight limits to be imposed.
