Engineers classified I-10 bridge that washed out in California Sunday as “functionally obsolete.” But what does that really mean?

The Federal Highway Administration defines functionally obsolete as “does not meet current design standards (for criteria such as lane width), either because the volume of traffic carried by the bridge exceeds the level anticipated when the bridge was constructed and/or the relevant design standards have been revised.”
