SEMCOG Bridge Condition Map:
This map shows bridge conditions based on the federal National Bridge Inventory (NBI) database. The map has ratings for bridges and culverts as of May 2022. The ratings are used to identify preservation, preventive maintenance, rehabilitation, and replacement needs. For more information about the Bridge data and for a more frequently updated source see the links below:here.
Condition ratings are based on a 0 to 9 scale and assigned to each culvert, or deck, superstructure, and substructure for each bridge. The ratings are recorded in the National Bridge Inventory (NBI) database. The bridge condition is determined by the lowest score for these bridge elements. If the lowest rating is greater than equal to 7, the bridge is classified as "good". If any of the bridge elements are less than or equal to 4, the bridge is classified as "poor". Bridges with the lowest element rated 5 or 6 are classified as "fair".
Weight limit signs may be posted on bridges to prevent loads that cause stresses above the safe limit of the structure. If the weight limit of a bridge is under 3 tons, it must be closed to traffic.
Bridges are structures that have a span greater than 20 feet. Structures with a span less than 20 feet are culverts..
