Have you ever wondered during your train ride or long road trip how easily you cross the deep rivers, mountains and other natural obstacles? The bridges which help you commute over the large gaps safely constantly bear the wrath of natural forces like strong winds, rain, scorching heat but still stand tall and in best shape. How is that possible?

It is possible because of federally mandated regular bridge inspections and maintenance of the
various bridge structure. There are basically six types of bridge inspection which are to be
performed at a definite time interval. These are:
Initial inspection – Also termed as inventory inspection and must be performed within
90 days of completion of the bridge.
Routine inspection – This should be performed every two years for regular
Damage inspection – This is performed when a natural calamity (storm, hurricane,
flood) occurs or after an accident over the bridge.
Underwater inspection – This is performed to check any water intrusion into the bridge
members, grime deposition, and corrosion of the base. This is performed on the
interval of 60 months.
In-Depth inspection – These are performed over complex and specialized bridges like
cable-stayed or suspension bridges. This is also performed on the interval of 60 months
or it can also be conducted to supplement the initial, routine, or damage inspection.
Provisional inspection – This can be performed anytime under the order of bridge
owner or person in charge of the bridge inspection activities.

inspection services and offers every kind of the above mentioned bridge inspection services.
