Transportation for America has created this interactive map, "2015 Bridge Conditions" showing which bridges in the U.S. are structurally sound or which ones are not.

Turns out, 1 in 9 bridges are deficient.

The map allows you to enter a place or an address and search a 10-mile radius. Any bridge marked deficient by the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) will show up in red. When you click on a map, you will learn about its ratings and last inspection , how many cars travel across it on average per day, and when it was built.
