Peppered with cracks and bone-rattling potholes, the pavement on New York’s interstate highways is the 10th worst in the nation, according to a new study cited by lohud.com.

The study was conducted by TRIPS, a nonprofit group sponsored by construction businesses, labor unions and insurance companies, the lohud.com report said.

TRIPS, which says funding for projects that affect transportation must be a priority, also found that 8 percent of the state’s bridges are structurally deficient, making them the fourth worst in the nation in term of overall condition, lohud.com reported.

According to governing.com, being "structurally deficient" means that a bridge has one or more components that are deteriorating and does not mean that they are imminently unsafe.

According to the lohud.com story, both the state Thruway Authority and Department of Transportation have plans for road and bridge repairs this summer.
