Welcome

The FDOT inspects all public highway bridges in the State. The bridge inventory in Florida ranks among the best in the nation, as a percentage of bridges that are considered "functionally obsolete," or "structurally deficient" (Deficient Bridges by State Highway System, FHWA).

"Functionally obsolete" means that the bridge design is outdated. For example, narrow shoulders, narrow lanes, or older traffic barriers can induce the functionally obsolete classification. Functionally obsolete bridges are scheduled for replacement or rehabilitation as budgets permit.

"Structurally deficient" means that a National Bridge Inspection (NBI) structural condition state is 4--Poor, or worse. (NBI) structural condition states are described within the FDOT Bridge Management System (BMS) Coding Guide, at keywords "DECK (58)," "SUPERSTUCTURE (59)," "SUBSTRUCTURE (60)," and "CULVERT (62)." Structurally deficient bridges are recommended for repair, or scheduled for replacement; meanwhile, they are posted as necessary for load, or closed. Within the tables below, an NBI Rating of "FO" means functionally obsolete, and an NBI Rating of "SD" means structurally deficient.
