The objective of this project is to provide local transportation officials with the information required to make sound decisions on the management of the bridges within their jurisdiction. Automated procedures were developed to prioritize the required maintenance, rehabilitation, or replacement (MR&R) within the district and present this information to the inventory manager. The automated procedure is intended to aid the transportation official in MR&R decisions, but not to be the final solution to every situation. In short, the program provides guidance.
