BROOKLYN - More than 2,000 New York bridges are structurally deficient and in need of repairs, according to federal officials.

That list includes the Brooklyn Bridge and Kosciuszko Bridge.

The state is spending $800 million for the new Kosciuszko span, and major repairs are underway at the George Washington Bridge and Robert F. Kennedy Bridge.

Officials say the state has several bridges that were not designed for the volume of traffic they are currently handling.
