🌉 Map du jour: Ohio's troubled bridges

Data: National Bridge Inventory; Map: Will Chase/Axios

Most Ohio bridges are in "good" condition, we reported earlier this month, but that still leaves over 1,000 bridges considered to be structurally deficient.

State of play: The above map offers another visual for how many of these troubled bridges are scattered around Ohio and how they've been in bad shape for years.

Zoom in: One troubled bridge is in Franklin County, located on Harrisburg Georgesville Road atop Big Darby Creek.

  • The bridge was built in 1932, rebuilt in 1980, and now carries around 2,200 vehicles per day.
  • It's been in "poor" condition for over 10 years, per National Bridge Inventory data.
