Changes To FHWA Bridge Inspection Standards Take Effect June 6

AASHTO Journal reports, “The Federal Highway Administration issued a final rule on May 6 that updates National Bridge Inspection Standards or NBIS for highway bridges; a rule that goes into effect on June 6. Concurrently, the agency issued an additional $1.1 billion in formula funding for bridge repair and replacement. FHWA noted in a statement that funding increase resulted from the fiscal year 2022 omnibus appropriations package signed in March – a package that finally honored full first-year transportation funding levels established by the [IIJA].” Some of the changes concern National Bridge Inventory reporting.
