    • Abstract:
      The AASHTO Standard Specifications for Highway Bridges are the basic documents guiding all design. This manual contains specific design and detailing criteria policies expressed by the Bridge Bureau and is intended: 1) to provide interpretation and consistency in the application of the AASHTO specifications; 2) to encourage the uniform preparation of plans and specifications, and; 3) to be followed on projects under the authority or oversight of the Bridge Bureau unless exceptions are approved by the State Bridge Engineer. Exceptions, based on sound engineering principles and judgement, are expected. Structural plans and specifications must clearly communicate the design concept and detail requirements of each project. Efficiency, economy, constructability, advances in technology, maintainability, and appearance are elements the designer must consider in applying the AASHTO specifications and these guidelines. Safety must be an integral part of each of these elements. This manual is intended to be continually updated as revisions and improvements are warranted.
