Highlights from FHWA’s 2013 National Bridge Inventory Data:  Of the 24,398 bridges in the state, 5,043 bridges, or 21% 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 1,228 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 Iowa has supported $1.3 billion in bridge construction spending on 1,837 bridges between 2003 and 2012, according to FHWA data.2  Since 2004, 2,187 new bridges have been constructed in the state and 242 bridges have undergone major reconstruction.  The state estimates that it would cost approximately $6.0 million to fix a total of 15,148 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 394 285,479 4,800,260 11 9,288 116,650 Other principal arterial 1,278 907,019 5,074,535 29 18,103 111,870 Minor arterial 1,073 559,932 1,970,480 42 34,699 67,230 Major collector 3,483 1,173,599 2,594,429 521 171,295 349,896 Minor collector 3,969 940,851 577,271 722 123,550 87,091 Local 12,160 1,720,784 662,802 3,546 384,840 150,429 Urban Bridges Interstate 314 627,172 7,337,115 11 18,372 250,800 Other freeway 0 0 0 0 0 0 Principal arterial 573 1,003,443 5,304,295 9 24,456 106,610 Minor arterial 511 568,778 3,564,101 49 70,391 276,810 Collector 236 138,840 626,211 25 17,182 57,580 Local 407 131,720 384,652 78 41,593 47,110 Not classified 0 0 0 0 0 0 Total 24,398 8,057,618 32,896,151 5,043 913,768 1,622,076 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 Iowa

I-80 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.
