Michigan Bridge Report Available On Line

The High Bridge

UNDATED (WHTC) -- A report issued by the Michigan Department of Transportation on the condition of bridges across the state is now posted on the michigan.gov website.  The report breaks down by county.  Ottawa, Allegan and Kent Counties have a total of 11 bridges that are considered structurally deficient, which means they may require rehabilitation or replacement at some time in the future.  Also on the list are 46 bridges that are considered functionally obsolete, which means their design is outdated, with Ottawa and Allegan having four of each of those and Kent County with 38.  Federal standards require that bridges are inspected every two years.  MDOT employs more than 20 inspectors that work in teams of two, using a variety of tools to assess bridge safety and structural integrity.
