Topic:  Discussion of Federal Requirements for Inspection and Inventory of Bridges and Tunnels.

2015-11-13 ASCE Presentation


Federal regulations for the inventory and inspection of bridges have been in place since 1971 and in 2015, the Code of Federal Regulations incorporated similar requirements for highway tunnels. Through the years, we updated inspections requirements to address risks and ensure the safety of the travelling public.  Presentation will discuss past and current inspection requirements, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (i.e., proposed changes to inspection requirements), and the current and proposed Federal Transportation Legislation.
