Bridge Inventory, Inspection, and Appraisal Program (BRINSAP)

RPS has inspected more than 21,000 miles of bridges across Texas over the last 20 years through the Texas Department of Transportation's Bridge Inspection Program. Each bridge was inspected carefully in accordance with guidelines from the National Highway Institute (NHI) Safety Inspection of In-Service Bridges training course and the current bridge inspection manual's "Coding Guide" to rate each element of each bridge component.Inspections included single- and multi-span concrete, timber and steel bridges in locations as diverse as high-traffic, interstate highways in dense urban areas such as Houston, Austin, Dallas and San Antonio, as well as bridges on rural farm-to-market and unpaved county roads.
