GENERAL

Article 5.1 of these Specifications gives Owners the opportunity to apply coastal loads in either the strength limit state or the extreme limit state, depending on the Owner's assessment of the criticality of the bridge. Evacuation and rescue/recovery of the affected area should be a prime factor when considering a system of bridges serving a coastal area. The effect on the local economy should also be considered.

No effect of anticipated climate change has been accounted for herein. Individual Owners may include this feature depending on their jurisdiction's policy in this regard.
