08.26.2021 | Inspectability Design: Bridge Life Cycle Cost Savings

Standard practice during bridge design and construction is to consider the biddability of the construction documents, the constructability of the design, and the operability of the asset. Designers may not consider the inspectability of the bridge over its life cycle. The link between bridge design and inspectability can have a significant impact on the life cycle cost of the structure. Attention to inspectability in the design phase can also facilitate inspection practice and improve safety over the life of the bridge.
