ConnDOT Biennial Bridge Inspection

ConnDOT Biennial Bridge Inspection
Project Overview: 
McLaren was retained by the Connecticut Department of Transportation for a total of five cycles of its biennial bridge inspection program, which encompasses above and underwater inspection and assessment of bridges statewide. The first three cycles (1993-1994, 1995-1996 and 2001-2002) totaled 280 to 360 bridges. In its last two cycles (2005-2006 and 2007-2008), McLaren is providing engineering services for above and below water bridge inspections on 534 highway bridges and over 80 culverts statewide. Types of bridges inspected during all cycles include steel deck girders, thru girders, concrete slab, and steel trusses.
McLaren's Role: 
McLaren was responsible for supplying underwater inspection services, providing fathometric surveys, and preparing comprehensive reports (including database management, photographs, underwater video documentation, and assessment of data). All inspections conform to the National Bridge Inspection Standards (NBIS) and the ConnDOT’s Bridge Inspection Manual (BIM version 2.1, September 2001).
