Section 4: Event-Driven Inspections

Perform event-driven inspections as a result of collision, fire, flood, significant environmental changes, or loss of structural support. These inspections are also called emergency inspections and are performed on an as-needed basis. In the past AASHTO referred to these inspections as damage inspections.

Prepare a report for each Event-Driven Inspection. Include in the report, at a minimum, the following:

  • photos documenting any damage
  • load ratings verifying capacity after event
  • channel profiles (when applicable)
  • repair recommendations
  • load restriction recommendations (if applicable).

Include all documentation from Event-Driven Inspections in the permanent bridge inspection record.
