Bridge inspectors use strict standards and specifications to ensure a bridge is safe for public use. A bridge’s the deck, superstructure and substructure are evaluated. Specific methods of inspection are determined by a variety of criteria, such as a bridge’s type and age. According to the Missouri Department of Transportation, most bridges require repairs after inspection. Common repairs include cleaning, replacing rotten wood and fixing cracks in concrete. Some bridge inspectors become SCUBA-certified to perform underwater substructure inspections. Bridges are given numerical ratings and may be subject to closing if an inspector finds particularly poor conditions.
