Section 9: Special Inspections
Special Inspections are typically performed to monitor a known or suspected deficiency at a specific location. These inspections can be recurring or performed on an as-needed basis. These inspections are limited in nature and do not satisfy the NBIS requirements of routine, underwater, nor fracture critical inspections.Example of Special Inspections are:
- Anchor: #COXMGONI
- Monitoring the settlement of a specific bent every 6 months. Anchor: #PMCAKWWN
- Monitoring the condition of a specific pin and hanger assembly every 3 months until the bridge is replaced. Anchor: #VICIXYKR
- Performing a one-time up-close inspection of a bridge deck soffit on a flyover using the Snooper due to conditions discovered in a recent routine inspection.
