Bridge Preservation Treatments and Best Practices

Cost-effective bridge maintenance practices need to be formulated and implemented to prolong the useful service life of Indiana bridges. This project will examine bridge maintenance operations being conducted in other states, as well as the maintenance being done within the various Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) Districts. A list of the most promising maintenance activities will then be developed and a thorough assessment of the activities will be performed. The deliverable product is a list of effective maintenance operations and recommendations of when they need to occur. Recommendations for training will also be provided.
