INFRASTRUCTURE RISK MANAGEMENT: PRIORITIZING BRIDGES FOR MAINTENANCE AND REHABILITATION FINAL REPORT

It is the purpose of this study to provide a generalized approach to bridge project selection, based on probabilistic models of bridge deterioration and safety at an elemental level. In order to provide systematic and efficient analysis of bridges, the input to all methods described here will be limited to the information available in existing state inventory and inspection databases. Because of the large number of bridges needed for statistical/probabilistic methods it would be impractical to collect any additional data at this point. This approach facilitates implementing and incorporating the proposed methodology into existing state database/management systems.
