DOD - UFC 3-310-08
NON-EXPEDITIONARY BRIDGE INSPECTION, MAINTENANCE, AND REPAIR
|Publication Date:||16 August 2010|
This UFC applies to all military garrison/base bridges, whether located in the contiguous United States (CONUS), or located outside the contiguous United States (OCONUS), including Alaska, Hawaii, U.S. territories and possessions, and foreign territories. This UFC does not apply to expeditionary bridges located in military theaters of operation. This UFC also does not apply to Army Corps of Engineers civil works bridges, located outside of a garrison/base; those bridges are governed by ER-1110-2-111.
This UFC provides guidance so that all military garrison/base bridges are appropriately inspected and the results reported in accordance with current federal standards and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) criteria. This UFC also provides guidance so all military garrison/base bridges are maintained and repaired in a consistent manner and in accordance with industry standards. The purpose is to ensure that military garrison/base bridges can remain safely in operation and will behave reliably for civilian and military traffic. The bridges inspected, operated, and maintained by military agencies should meet (or exceed) the same standards to which bridges under U.S. civilian jurisdiction are subject.
