Railroad bridges range from inspiring architectural marvels spanning giant bodies of water to tiny timber trestles offering passage over low spots on the prairie. All railroad bridges must carry trains safely and quickly, but changing times and trends are making that task more difficult. The article focuses on the importance of inspection and maintenance, followed by necessary structural and geotechnical repairs. Some of the advanced technologies available for both inspection and maintenance are also discussed.
