SPR 20-580: Inspection Training Course on Bridge Preventive Maintenance Activities

Grants and Contracts Details

Description

A recent K.TC report and implementation project identified 8 common preventive maintenance tasks (bridge washing, cleaning and painting barrier walls, pier caps and abutments, cleaning and lubricating bearings, erosion and sediment control, patching of bridge decks, pier caps and columns, resealing and repairing joints, sealing decks and barrier walls, and spot painting) for KYTC to adopt statewide for maintaining bridge conditions through routine treatments and minor repairs. This work was amplified in a follow-on KHIT that developed exemplary special notes for work by state forces and by contract. To promote the use of those tasks, training could be developed and delivered to KYTC inspectors, workers and contractor personnel to better enable them to perform those tasks.
