MDOT Develops Local Bridge Owner Guide

Posted on October 26, 2018 by Dene Westbrook

In order to further support the strategic partnership with Michigan’s Local Agencies in the management of our state bridge resources, MDOT has developed the Local Bridge Owners Guide. The purpose of this guide is to present a high-level overview of what it means to be a Local Bridge Owner in the State of Michigan, and some of the requirements of Bridge Ownership. To view the Guide please click here.

We hope that you would take a few minutes review the Local Bridge Owner’s Guide for information on topics such as the contents of the bridge file, bridge inspection types and frequencies, scour evaluations, and load rating requirements. If you have any questions regarding the attached guide, please email MDOT at [email protected]

John LaMacchia is the Assistant Director of State and Federal Affairs for the League handling transportation, infrastructure, energy and environment issues. He can be reached at [email protected] or 517-908-0303.
