Transportation for America, a group desperately trying to get someone - anyone - to pay attention to the sorry state of our nation's infrastructure, has just released a detailed report on structurally deficient bridges on major highways and streets throughout the the country.
Well, they certainly got our attention for what it's worth.
There are sixty bridges - yes, 6-0 give or take a couple - within a 10 mile radius of Griffith Park that fall into the structurally deficient category. Immediately surrounding the park there are 9 in the same category. The worst appears to be the iconic Hyperion Bridge, with a deck rating of 4 and super and sub-structure ratings of 6 on a scale of 1-10.

Here's to hoping that someone finally pays attention.
