Michigan Department of Transportation has launched a new, online dashboard to make information about the condition of all bridges on state and local road systems easily accessible to the public.
Replacing a more limited version from 2018, the Michigan Bridge Conditions dashboard is now online, providing data on more than 11,000 bridges across the state.
Matt Chynoweth, head of the agency’s Bureau of Bridges and Structures, said bridges on state and local road systems are rated good, fair or poor. The dashboard shows visual representations of the number of bridges in each category, while an interactive map on the site shows the location and color-coded status for each structure.
Users can sort and view data by bridge rating, ownership or geographical area.
