The nation’s leading highway and transportation organization has published a new technical guide for agencies that perform element-level bridge inspections.

Manual for Bridge Element Inspection, 1st Edition, is the latest offering from AASHTO, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials.

The new manual aims "to capture the condition of bridges in a simple, effective way that can be standardized nationwide."

The 258-page manual supersedes the AASHTO Guide to Commonly Recognized Structural Elements, 1st Edition and the AASHTO Guide Manual for Bridge Element Inspection, 1st Edition.

What's Inside

Designed for use by state departments of transportation and other agencies that perform element-level bridge inspections, the manual is a reference for standardized element definitions, element quantity calculations, condition state definitions, element feasible actions, and inspection conventions.

"Its goal is to capture the condition of bridges in a simple, effective way that can be standardized nationwide, while providing enough flexibility to be adapted to both large- and small-agency settings," according to AASHTO.

The manual, available in print and as a download, costs $160 for AASTO members; $192 for nonmembers.

AASHTO, "the voice of transportation," represents all five transportation modes: air, highways, public transportation, rail, and water. The group serves as a liaison between state DOTs and the federal government.

AASHTO is an international leader in setting technical standards for all phases of highway system development. Standards are issued for design, construction of highways and bridges, materials, and many other technical areas.
