Each colored symbol () pinpoints a structurally deficient and fracture critical bridge.

The colors specify the average daily traffic (cars) a bridge receives:

Fewer than 24,999 25,000 — 74,999 75,000 — 99,999 More than 100,000


By accessing the Save Our Bridges Map, users can enter a zip code to immediately see the dangerous bridges in their area. Families can see if their children's school buses or their own commutes to work or church take them across a bridge that is both structurally deficient and fracture critical. Trucking companies and other suppliers can determine whether the routes their carriers take require that they cross these dangerous bridges.


The map covers all 50 states. By clicking on a particular icon, one can readily see information taken from the Federal Highway Administration and state transportation agencies describing when the particular bridge was built, how much daily traffic crosses the bridge, and other pertinent information about its structure. Also, by clicking on "Street View," for many of the featured bridges, users can go from a map view of the area around a bridge to an actual photograph of the bridge.
