Okay, the bridge that collapsed in Minnesota was rated at about 50, and now they're saying that's one step above terrible as far as safety and condition is concerned. I have to wonder how much part the construction played in the collapse.

But anyway, MSNBC has an interactive map so you can see all the "major" bridges in each US state that are either obsolete or deficient in some way. I called up VA. The I-95 bridge near Rt.1 in Alexandria is rated as a 2.0. I'm trying to figure out which bridge this is.

Here's the link to the list:

There's also one on 27 in Arlington near 50 and 395 that's rated a 4:

4.0 27 (road number)ARLINGTON COLUMBIA PIKE 00.86FR50/00.33TO395

Fairfax:
6.3 674 FAIRFAX DIFFICULT RUN 00.20FR677/00.70TO673
I believe this is the one-lane bridge on Hunter Mill Road

These aren't even all the ones in the single digits. They're just the ones around here. There's one near my parent's and brother's & sister-in-law's house down in southeastern VA too.
