The 2017 manual “provides information pertaining to the unique structural, mechanical, and electrical components and operational characteristics of a movable highway bridge,” according to the introduction, and was developed for bridge engineers, inspectors and maintainers.”

The introduction goes on to say that the manual aims to be a single-source document to address industry needs and help those in the field meet the requirements of the National Bridge Inspection Standards.

However, if a project is advanced in design it “may require a level of sophistication higher than the minimum guidelines and procedures described in this manual.”

The manual comes in three formats: looseleaf hard copy, printable PDF download and online. For more information, visit www.bookstore.transportation.org.
