 In a study done by 24/7 Wall St., Arizona ranked in the top half of states in the country for having the most hazardous infrastructure.

Creating an index that took into account roads in poor condition, bridges classified as structurally deficient and dams at high hazard risk, all the states were ranked.

Arizona finished at No. 15.

It has the eighth-highest amount of dams at high hazard risk with 44.5 percent, while its deficient bridges are only at 2.6 percent, the fourth-lowest. The number of roads that are in poor condition checked in at 3.9 percent, which is the ninth-lowest. Finally, the total percentage of spending used on highways was at 5.5 percent, 20th-lowest.
