Several states in the U.S., including New York, Oklahoma and Washington, have bridges that are either "structurally deficient" or "fracture critical," according to an Associated Press analysis. Although states have generally bolstered funding sources and developed initiatives for bridge upgrades, the AP analysis shows 65,605 bridges are structurally deficient, while nearly 21,000 are considered fracture critical. Almost 8,000 are classified as both.
