Definition of Bridge Performance: Bridge Performance Encompasses How Bridges Function and Behave Under the Complex and Interrelated Factors they are Subjected to Daily:

Traffic VolumesLoadsDe-Icing ChemicalsFreeze-Thaw CyclesEnvironmentExtreme EventsMethod of DesignConstructionMaterialsAgeMaintenance


Vision: The LTBP Program will Serve as the National Platform for Strategic Long-Term Investigation of In Service Bridge Performance.

Mission: Foster Improved Bridge Performance, Health, Stewardship, and Management Through the Analysis of Data Collected Over a 20-Year Period on a Large Representative Sample of U.S. Highway Bridges. To achieve this, the Program is Designed to Produce and Support Improved Deterioration Models, Reliable Life Cycle Cost and Forecasting Models, Design Procedures, and Decision-Making Tools.

Central online library of videos and resources for local agencies Each video addresses a single topic condenses complex regulations and requirements of the Federal-aid Highway Program into easy-to understand concepts and illustrated examples Launched August 27, 2012 at the American Public Works Association (APWA) International Public Works Congress and Exposition

SNPRM published in Federal Register Comments due by September 30, 2013 013-17875/national-tunnel-inspection-standards#h-4 TOMIE Manual at National Tunnel Inventory and Coding Guide being developed

MAP-21 requires AMS for NHS bridges and pavements States document how they will do business State must define performance measures for bridges and pavements Penalties if performance not met

Mandated by MAP-21 Methodology, training, and qualifications for inspectors Frequency of inspections Three years to complete (October 2015)

Risk-based inspection intervals

Is 24 months the right interval for both of these bridges?

Procedure for National Certification of Inspectors

Procedures for Reporting “Critical Findings”

Relate to structural or safety- related deficiencies of highway bridges Monitoring activities and corrective actions taken in response to a critical finding

MAP-21 mandates Procedures for annual compliance reviews Penalty for noncompliance with the NBIS Establishes timeframes States notified of noncompliance concerns by Dec 31 st 45 days to resolve or establish a PCA Implement penalty if no PCA or resolution Federal Register Notice being developed
