The Bridge Inspection Rating guidance shall be used by MoDOT's internal staff, as well as consultants, contractors, local agencies and may be used by other department of transportation agencies as a reference. The guidance was developed to ensure uniformity in the inventory and appraisal of all bridges within the state of Missouri. It defines the general guidelines and processes of MoDOT's Non-State Bridge Inspection program along with giving specific load rating procedures for bridges in Missouri.

In case of conflict or apparent error the user should advise the State Bridge Office in Jefferson City.

The guidance is provided in Acrobat Reader format. To use the guidance as it is intended, you will need to download the Free Adobe Adobe Acrobat Reader from Adobe's web site.
