COURSE TITLE: FHWA Bridge Preservation Guide
COURSE NO: S02-018
FHWA Bridge Preservation Guide
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the attributes that an SPM program should have, if it is to be acceptable for federal-aid funding.  More generally, the course provides bridge-related definitions and commentaries, as well as the framework for a systematic approach to a preventive maintenance program.

 

More than 25% of the Nation's 600,000 bridges are rated as structurally deficient or functionally obsolete, and more than 30 percent of existing bridges have exceeded their 50-year theoretical design life and are in need of various levels of repairs, rehabilitation, or replacement.

 

Recognizing the extent of this problem, in 2008 Congress approved legislation adding systematic preventive maintenance (SPM) for bridges as an activity eligible for federal funding through the Federal Highway Bridge Program.  An SPM program for bridges can be defined as a planned strategy of cost-effective treatments to existing bridges that are intended to maintain or preserve the structural integrity and functionality of elements and/or components, and retard future deterioration, thus maintaining or extending the useful life of the bridge.

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended for Federal, State and local bridge engineers, area engineers, bridge owners, and bridge preservation practitioners involved with the maintenance and preservation of bridges.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Learning about replacement, preservation, rehabilitation and preventive maintenance
  • Learning about condition-based activities and cyclical (non-condition based) activities
  • Knowing the National Bridge Inventory General Condition Ratings
  • Learning the definition of "structurally deficient"
  • Understanding the concept of "functionally obsolete"
  • Knowing the meaning of "sufficiency rating"
  • Understanding what is a systematic preventive maintenance program
  • Learning about the six attributes of an SPM program needed to qualify for federal funding
