Mich. bridges considered 'deficient,' 'critical'

There are 28 Michigan bridges that are considered "structurally deficient" and "fracture critical," according to data compiled by The Associated Press.

A bridge is structurally deficient if at least one major component of the span has significant deterioration. A bridge is fracture critical if the failure of a single, vital component could cause a collapse. The label doesn't automatically mean a bridge is too dangerous for travel, state officials said.
