The goal of this project is to extend the service life of local bridges located in Columbia, Missouri. The objective of the project is to develop guidelines for bridge maintenance and preservation. Deliverables from the project will include procedures for short-term (next 12 to 24 months), mid-term (24 to 72 months) and long-term (73 to 120 months) actions that can be implemented to extend the life of bridges and reduce maintenance cost for bridges in Columbia.
