Therefore, when referring to the deficiency being calculated not using the 10-year rule, the status will be calculated without taking into consideration the year built or the year reconstructed. U.S. totals include the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Table includes: Rural–Interstate, principal arterial, minor arterial, major collector, minor collector and local roads; Urban–Interstate, other freeways or expressways, other principal arterial, minor arterial, collector, and local roads.
