NCHRP Project 14-29: Workshops for Assessing, Coding, and Marking of Highway Structures in Emergency Situations

After an emergency event, state departments of transportation (DOTs) must ensure that highway structures are safe for the public by assessing, coding, and marking each highway structure to communicate the status of the structure. As the impacts of emergency events increasingly reach beyond state boundaries, uniform assessment processes and national coding and marking guidelines are needed. Completed in 2016, National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Project 14-29 addressed these issues. In this article, the authors describe the project as well as national- and state-level training workshops disseminating the research. The details of a customized training developed for Hawaii are included.
