Bridge Inspections

Bridge Inspections are performed on each structure annually in accordance with National Bridge Inspection Standards. Results are documents in PONTIS. Full color reports are generated and then reviewed with the owner during a Feasible Action Review Committee. Work orders are generated with a priority rating system.

Florida Drawbridge crews or contractors make repairs and document the repairs closing the work orders in the System.

Every component of the bridge is visually inspected within an arms length distance.

Routine inspections will include a structural inspection of the entire bridge and fender system, a fracture critical inspection of all fracture critical elements, a mechanical/ electrical inspection of the movable bridge machinery and electrical systems, and an underwater inspection of all bridge and fender system elements below water.

Annual inspections will include a structural inspection of the movable span, a fracture critical inspection of all fracture critical elements, and a mechanical/electrical inspection of the movable bridge machinery and electrical systems.
