Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Problems. Topic 44-15. State Bridge Load Posting Processes and Practices

The Transportation Research Board's (TRB's) National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Synthesis 453: State Bridge Load Posting Processes and Practices is a synthesis of the practices of U.S. state governments in restricting weights of vehicles that can cross highway bridges and culverts to levels below legal loads. Bridges and culverts restricted for vehicle weights are called load posted structures. The load posting practices of bridge owners include the identification of structures to post for load, the evaluation of safe load capacities of these structures, and the implementation of restrictions on vehicle weights at structures.
