Bonner Bridge NC 12 over Oregon Inlet

According to the US Department of Transportation - Federal Highway Administration more than 25 percent of the Nation's 600,000 bridges are rated as structurally deficient or functionally obsolete. More than 30 percent of existing bridges have exceed their 50-year theoretical design life and are in need of various levels of repair, rehabilitation, or replacement. 

Preventive Bridge Maintenance

Bridge owners typically apply preventive maintenance to elements or components of structures with significant remaining useful life. As a major part of bridge preservation, Preventive Maintenance is a strategy of extending useful life by applying cost-effective treatments to sound bridges (good or fair condition). The concept of preventative bridge maintenance suggests that a planned strategy of cost-effective treatments should be performed to keep bridges in good condition, retard future deterioration, and avoid large expenses in bridge reconstruction or replacements.
