Idaho Bridge Inspection Coding Guide

This 2014 edition of the Idaho Bridge Inspection Coding Guide incorporates a few changes and corrections from the previous issues of the coding guide. The Structure Inventory and Appraisal portion of this coding guide is based directly on the Federal Highway Administration’s Recording and Coding Guide for the Structure Invetory and Appraisal of the Nation's Bridges, December 1995. The AASHTO Manual for Bridge Evaluation (MBE), Second Edition 2011 with 2013 Interims addresses requirements for record-keeping, inspection material testing, load rating and posting of bridges. The Idaho Manual for Bridge Evaluation (IMBE) 2014 Edition is written as a supplement to the MBE, and presents practices and procedures that are specific to the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD). The Bridge Inspector's Reference Manual (BIRM), 2012 Edition discusses inspection procedures and analysis of a structure. Other reporting requirements and qualifications of personnel appear in the National Bridge Inspection Standards (23 CFR650.3). These publications are valuable supplements to this guide.
