The inspections provide a detailed assessment of bridge conditions, identify necessary repairs and develop recommendations for bridge replacements that comply with Bridge Safety Standards.
The inspections cover timber, steel and concrete structures, as well as groundwater and underwater inspections. In addition, JLP will update the district's Bridge Management Plan and annually formulate a prioritized list of capital bridge replacements.
"We are pleased to have been selected by North County Transit District to assist with such a significant program," said JLP President Jacqueline Patterson. The contract also allocates funds for oversight on upcoming bridge construction projects.
