STATEWIDE — Over the last couple months, INDOT has been out studying the state’s roads and bridges.

Everything is looking good, says a report from the American Road and Transportation Builders Association. It says out of over 19,000 bridges throughout the state, only around 1,300 were deemed “structurally deficient.”

Some of those bridges include the I-65 bridge over the Wabash River in Lafayette, the I-65 crossings over New York and Ohio Streets in downtown Indy, and the State Road 62 crossing over Evansville Western Railroad in Vanderburgh County.

Others in central Indiana include:

– I-70 over Meridan Street

– I-465 over 96th Street

– I-69 over Thorpe Creek overflow

– 16th Street over Little Eagle Creek

– Kessler Blvd W. Dr over White River

– 30th Street over White River

– Allisonville Rd over Shoemaker Ditch

– Dandy Trail over Eagle Creek

INDOT has already begun rehabilitation work on many interstate bridges all across the state. The study estimates that the overall cost of the bridge rehab work in Indiana will be to the tune of $521 million.
