These circumstances require more intensive inspection, but at a lower cost. With the recent increase in available monitoring and computing technology, it is feasible to develop and deploy intelligent bridge monitoring systems. 4.

Effective monitoring systems can: • Assess long-term performance and increase system reliability • Improve the credibility of inspections and subsequent ratings through less subjective data • Improve uniformity of data, enabling the development of better decision-making tools • Improve and augment visual assessment, and provide early detection and warning.

Have survived for over 150 years with proper maintenance. New design techniques assume a shorter life of a bridge or just the superstructure of 75 to 80 years.
