Bridge Inspection Rating Manual 



The Bridge Inspection Rating Manual, provided by the State Bridge Office, shall be used by MoDOT's internal staff, as well as consultants, contractors, local agencies and may be used by other department of transportation agencies as a reference.

It defines the general guidelines and processes of MoDOT's Non-State Bridge Inspection program along with giving specific load rating procedures for bridges in Missouri.

In case of conflict or apparent error the user should advise the State Bridge Office in Jefferson City.
