AASHTO LRFD Bridge Construction Specifications

AASHTO LRFD Bridge Construction Specifications, 3rd Edition, with 2010 Interim Revisions This new edition has been revised to be consistent with its companion, the recently updated AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications (see related item). Among the revisions are improved testing and acceptance criteria, updated material references, and recommended guidelines for construction loads. For ease of use, a bookmarked and hyperlinked, this book of the specifications is included with the publication.

AASHTO LRFD Bridge Construction Specifications The first broadly recognized national standard to design and construct bridges in the United States was published in 1931 by the American Association of State Highway Officials (AASHO), the predecessor to AASHTO. With the advent of the automobile and the establishment of highway departments in all of the American states dating back to just before the turn of the century, the design, construction, and maintenance of most U.S. bridges was the responsibility of these departments and, more specifically, the chief bridge engineer within each department. It was natural, therefore, that these engineers, acting collectively as the AASHTO Highways Subcommittee on Bridges and Structures, would become the author and guardian of this first bridge standard.

AASHTO LRFD Bridge Construction Specifications This first publication was entitled Standard Specifications for Highway Bridges and Incidental Structures. It quickly became the de facto national standard and, as such, was adopted and used by not only the state highway departments but also other bridge-owning authorities and agencies in the United States and abroad. The title was soon revised to Standard Specifications for Highway Bridges and new editions were released about every four years. AASHTO released the 17th and final edition in 2002
