RE: Inspection of Privately Owned Bridges

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
This is the national standard for public bridges, the inspection of private bridge vary from state to state. In some states any bridge that can be access from a public road must be constructed, maintained and inspected by a certified bridge inspector, the idea here is if someone turns off the public road by accident and bridge that they cross will meet the minimum state standard. In other states the insurance provider will specify the criteria.
