Develop Element Level Bridge Performance Measures and Targets

Status:  Active
Project Start Date:  No Date


The objectives of the proposed research are to develop bridge element condition indexes that will guide cost-effective life cycle treatment selection; to develop a process and a tool to rank bridges within treatment categories based on the developed indexes; and to provide MnDOT with updated performance measures, targets, and a process which will manage Minnesota bridge assets with minimum life cycle costs. The models and the methodology will be refined based on a pilot test of the concept and the models with MnDOT.
