NYC IBO Report says spending increases will be needed for the average condition of NYC's bridges to improve.

A Fiscal Brief by the New York City Indpendent Budget Office evaluated NYC capital spending on bridges between 2000 and 2012.  The report notes that although the condition of bridges has improved, spending increases will be necessary for the average condition of the city's bridges to improve further.  Likewise, the IBO found, a reduction in bridge investment carries the risk of deterioration in bridge condtions.
