SIMCO Engineering, P.C., as a sub-consultant, performed biennial bridge inspection for New York State DOT. During inspection, SIMCO’s team performed:
- Structural inspection for fracture critical/non-redundant members and fatigue prone details
- Safety inspection for bridge under-deck concrete and top of the bridge sidewalk, bridge railing, and approaches for pedestrians and vehicular traffic
The above inspection was performed as per NYSDOT inspection guidelines. Staff verified bridge plans and cross-sections and prepared detailed Flag reports in BIPPI and critical monitoring sketches for several deteriorated steel members.
