TOWARDS THE IMPLEMENTATION OF AN OVERLOAD PERMIT FORMULA USING NETWORK MODELS AND BRINSAP. INTERIM REPORT
The development of the conceptual methodology for identifying bridges along a path of travel on a highway system for evaluating an overload permit formula is presented. Simple network models of highway systems with defined nodes (intersections) and links (road segments) and highway and bridge identification attributes are used to determine routes of travel given general directions. Once the links to be crossed over are identified, bridge information is retrieved from BRINSAP through control section or bridge attributes on the links of the model.
