HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

An overpass in Huntsville has made a dubious list of dangerous bridges in Alabama.

A study by the Alabama Department of Transportation ranked the overpass at North Memorial Parkway and University Drive second on the state's list of the most heavily-traveled "functionally obsolete" state-maintained bridges.

The ranking means it was built to standards that no longer match it's use. The Alabama Department of Transportation blames the condition of the overpass on a lack of funds.
