Ark. has 156 spans deficient, fracture critical

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Associated Press reviewed spans listed in the National Bridge Inventory and found 7,795 listed as both "structurally deficient" and "fracture critical." In Arkansas, the state Highway and Transportation Department lists 156 of its 12,500 bridges under both criteria.

A bridge is "structurally deficient" when it is in need of rehabilitation or replacement because at least one major component of the span has advanced deterioration or other problems that lead inspectors to deem its condition "poor" or worse. A bridge is deemed "fracture critical" when it does not have redundant protections and is at risk of collapse if a single, vital component fails.

The table shows each route, the county in which it is located, what it crosses and its approximate location. For federal and state highways, the "Traffic" column shows the average daily traffic in 2012, based on figures from the state highway department. For U.S. 67 North in Randolph County, the traffic figure is for northbound and southbound vehicles; only northbound traffic crosses a bridge listed as structurally deficient and fracture critical.
