AASHTO has their own LRFD version of the Standard Specifications for Highway
Bridges. It is similar to AISC LRFD but adapted to AASHTO guidelines.

Subject: LRFD and AASHTO

I am a recent graduate and would typically use LRFD in designing.  My boss
typically uses ASD.  I am just doing simple sign structures for DFW Airport
but the question has come up, how does LRFD fit in with AASHTO?
Specifically we are looking at the different load combinations and which
factors to apply.  If anybody has any ideas please respond directly to me.
