The New Mexico bridge inspection program is reviewed for its uniqueness as well as the use of the resulting data. Annual training sessions and field work with college professors has kept the program viable and continuing. Close cooperation with the Civil Engineering Department, New Mexico State University, has led to utilization of bridge capacity data developed within the program into a statewide overload routing and permit system. The system takes an overload wheel configuration and load distribution and computes an equivalent HS loading which is compared to the capacity of each bridge along a given route. /Author/
