CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – There are currently 644 bridges in Massachusetts that are listed as structurally deficient. Of that total, there are 275 in western Massachusetts.

A new report from the Massachusetts Budget & Policy Center that was released Wednesday that states one in 12 bridges are in need of repair or replacement.

“Every bridge in our Commonwealth should be safe, well maintained, and open for travel. Bridges connect communities while linking goods to markets, workers to jobs, and families to essential services,” said Phineas Baxandall, Senior Analyst at MassBudget and co-author of the report. “Massachusetts state of bridge repair had improved under a previous $3 billion Accelerated Bridge Repair program that expired. The Commonwealth needs ongoing revenue invested in addressing our backlog of structurally deficient bridges.”

According to the interactive map from MassDOT the following bridges are listed as structurally deficient in western Massachusetts:
