Why are Bridge Inspections Important?


Bridge inspections are a key component in maintaining a safe transportation system. They ensure the structural integrity of our bridges and keep the agency in compliance with state and federal laws. Bridge safety inspections also provide the condition assessment data that supports MnDOT decisions regarding bridge repair, rehabilitation, and replacement. Careful monitoring of bridge conditions allows us to make the right investment at the right time to maintain safe and reliable highways for the traveling public.
