The state offers a bridge inspection site that lists every bridge, last time inspected, and the state of the structure at that time. I have an I-275 bridge nearby that passes over a road. Cement was falling from the bottom of the bridge so they came out and installed plywood underneath to catch the chunks before falling on traffic. This bridge was rated pretty decent because the superstructure was fully in tact.
