In 1985 the province of Alberta initiated the development of a comprehensive automated bridge inspection and maintenance system. The primary objectives of the system are to ensure an appropriate level of safety to the travelling public, protect the investment in bridge structures and provide an improved management tool for bridge staff at all levels. This paper describes the first phase of the program, which includes layout of the system to accomodate present and future needs, details on the 27 different types of inspection forms, the condition rating procedure, sufficiency rating programs, and operating guidelines that govern the use of the system. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 807201.
