Bridges and Structures Safety

Bridge and structure safety oversight is a key element to the efforts of the Bridge and Structures Safety Division. Through its field enforcement staff, the division participates in bridge accident investigations; performs bridge assessments and bridge management program reviews; and provides direction and technical advice in bridge inspection, maintenance, and management. In addition, the division provides guidance on Railroad Bridge Worker Safety.
