New York’s bridges are falling apart and need billions of dollars in repairs.
That’s according to a new report by the state comptroller’s office that's set to be released tomorrow.
It says nearly 11-hundred of the state’s locally-owned bridges are not structurally sound for heavier loads or are prone to floods.
State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli says New York needs $27 billion to repair the aging infrastructure.
That will require federal help.
The report says the city has 86 structurally-deficient bridges, the most of anywhere in the state, but no specific crossings were named.
