Bridge inspection and maintenance system : BIM Level 2 inspection manual. Version 2

Description

The Alberta Transportation bridge inspection program is an essential part of a comprehensive inventory, inspection, maintenance, and data management system called the Bridge Inspection and Maintenance (BIM) System. The inspection component, introduced in 1987, allows for regular scheduled inspections at all bridge and culvert sites. These inspections provide information to the system that allow inspection management, maintenance programming, budget development, strategic planning, and life cycle planning so that the safety of the traveling public and the investment in bridge structures is optimized. Occasionally, the regular Level 1 inspections highlight problems that require more detailed inspections in order to determine the proper course of action to address a problem. The Level 2 inspections are the tools that provide the detailed inspection and test information to the system. This helps to maximize the life and serviceability of bridge structures by identifying problems and initiating effective maintenance, rehabilitation, or monitoring schemes.
