Empowering strong transportation investments
Bridge management is a specialized form of asset management that focuses on developing a strategic maintenance plan for your bridges. Pier Solutions guides clients through the following plan, allowing you to strategically focus your investments and reduce long-term costs.
1. Develop a Bridge Inventory
Develop an inventory with basic information on your bridges' location, geometry, materials and roadway type.
2. Inspect Structure
Identify deficiencies, and allocate a structural level of importance (primary, secondary and tertiary) to each deficiency in each bridge. Primary repairs are the most important for maintaining the strength of the bridge. Secondary and tertiary repairs are of decreasing significance.
3. Prioritize Strategic Infrastructure
Identify the strategic importance of your bridges by assessing their role in connecting people to daily activities and goods to market through a road network analysis and community engagements. This step may include load ratings.
4. Identify Investments
Identify the most effective maintenance treatment, for the most critical elements of the most strategic bridge, at the critical time, in a cost effective manner – we do this in collaboration with you, as it is a juggling act!
