Minnesota ranks relatively well for bridge deficiencies when compared to other states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico. The data show that in 2006, ten percent of all 13,008 bridges in the state were rated deficient, ranking 38th. Just 3 percent of the 1,657 National Highway System bridges in Minnesota were rated deficient last year, and 10 percent of the Non-National Highway bridges were deficient. Minnesota ranked 40th and 41st, respectively, in those categories.
