Highlights from FHWA’s 2013 National Bridge Inventory Data:  Of the 14,769 bridges in the state, 835 bridges, or 6% 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 1,765 bridges, or 12% 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 Georgia has supported $1.2 billion in bridge construction spending on 1,337 bridges between 2003 and 2012, according to FHWA data.2  Since 2004, 1,083 new bridges have been constructed in the state and 246 bridges have undergone major reconstruction.  The state estimates that it would cost approximately $14.8 billion to fix a total of 14,743 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 426 722,754 15,235,732 6 11,481 242,630 Other principal arterial 983 969,968 7,531,912 18 47,494 109,010 Minor arterial 1,354 838,473 5,082,112 39 25,351 185,900 Major collector 2,625 983,059 3,607,391 123 50,888 143,630 Minor collector 1,170 268,117 1,055,530 91 22,300 50,298 Local 3,423 573,831 2,354,219 413 59,258 121,183 Urban Bridges Interstate 575 1,164,044 54,816,958 4 1,212 349,190 Other freeway 233 306,505 12,503,940 1 0 26,920 Principal arterial 789 1,165,536 15,297,832 10 21,852 246,630 Minor arterial 1,228 1,088,321 15,285,236 46 33,441 387,027 Collector 602 364,984 4,301,895 16 8,216 84,439 Local 1,361 726,658 6,848,206 68 12,150 105,649 Not classified 0 0 0 0 0 0 Total 14,769 9,172,250 143,920,963 835 293,644 2,052,506 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 Georgia

Sources: All data is from the 2013 National Bridge Inventory, released by the Federal Highway Administration in March 2014. 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.
