Highlights from FHWA’s 2013 National Bridge Inventory Data:  Of the 14,088 bridges in the state, 1,198 bridges, or 9% are classified as structurally deficient. This means one or more of the key bridge elements, such as the deck, superstructure or substructure, is considered to be in “poor” or worse condition.1  There are 772 bridges, or 5% of all state bridges, classified as functionally obsolete. This means the bridge does not meet design standards that are in line with current practice.  Federal-aid investment in Wisconsin has supported $1.3 billion in bridge construction spending on 2,234 bridges between 2003 and 2012, according to FHWA data.2  Since 2004, 1,712 new bridges have been constructed in the state and 193 bridges have undergone major reconstruction.  The state estimates that it would cost approximately $1.6 billion to fix a total of 1,975 bridges in the state.3 Bridge Inventory: All Bridges Structurally deficient Bridges Type of Bridge Total Number Area (sq. meters) Daily Crossings Total Number Area (sq. meters) Daily Crossings Rural Bridges Interstate 612 436,494 10,959,899 23 13,114 443,935 Other principal arterial 1,207 777,475 9,759,164 27 16,830 148,982 Minor arterial 1,082 510,855 4,140,546 45 13,164 211,555 Major collector 1,825 538,104 2,873,389 220 55,640 277,516 Minor collector 705 159,512 577,362 104 22,374 65,568 Local 5,794 891,925 2,043,094 611 62,340 125,040 Urban Bridges Interstate 513 907,361 16,467,148 14 77,868 484,406 Other freeway 376 489,551 10,309,550 8 8,148 141,500 Principal arterial 716 907,602 11,833,900 23 25,603 276,981 Minor arterial 561 556,877 5,946,110 60 56,010 550,194 Collector 183 99,716 905,283 20 11,232 67,060 Local 514 242,398 1,948,208 43 10,488 78,602 Not classified 0 0 0 0 0 0 Total 14,088 6,517,870 77,763,653 1,198 372,809 2,871,339 1 According to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), a bridge is classified as structurally deficient if the condition rating for the deck, superstructure, substructure or culvert and retaining walls is rated 4 or below or if the bridge receives an appraisal rating of 2 or less for structural condition or waterway adequacy. During inspections, the condition of a variety of bridge elements are rated on a scale of 0 (failed condition) to 9 (excellent condition). A rating of 4 is considered “poor” condition and the individual element displays signs of advanced section loss, deterioration, spalling or scour. 2 ARTBA analysis of FHWA data, includes all bridge construction related spending on projects approved by FHWA between 2003 and 2012. 3 This data is provided by bridge owners as part of the FHWA data and is required for any bridge eligible for the Highway Bridge Replacement and Rehabilitation Program. However, for some states this amount is very low and likely not an accurate reflection of current costs. State Bridge Profile Wisconsin

Note that specific conditions on bridge may have changed as a result of recent work. Cost estimates of bridge work provided as part of the data and have been adjusted to 2013$ for inflation and estimated project costs. Contract awards data is for state and local government awards and comes from McGraw Hill. Note that additional bridge investment may be a part of other contract awards if a smaller bridge project is included with a highway project, and that would not be accounted for in the total in this profile.
