Highway Bridge Maintenance Planning and Scheduling provides new tactics for highway departments around the world that are faced with the dilemma of providing improved operations on a shoestring budget. Even after the much needed infrastructure funding is received, the question of which project comes first must be answered. Written by a 20-year veteran with the Kansas Department Of Transportation Bridge Office in design and in maintenance, this book provides Senior Bridge Maintenance Engineers with practical advice on how to create an effective maintenance program that will allow them to not only plan, schedule, direct, and monitor highway bridge repair and rehabilitation projects, but also evaluate all completed work for technical acceptability, productivity, and unit-cost standards. Provides the tools and methods for building, maintaining, planning, and scheduling effective maintenance Presents experience-based suggestions for evaluating highway bridges to determine maintenance priorities Includes methods for evaluating all completed work for technical acceptability, productivity, and unit-cost standards
