This project included the NBIS inspection of 61 Mercer County Bridges for NJDOT. Inspection categories included biennial, initial, underwater, special, and interim types. One bridge was over an active railroad and the remaining bridges were over waterways. PCS utilized large ladders, platform boats, and inspection cranes to gain access to reach critical areas. Superstructure types included stone arches, box culverts, steel trusses, steel beams, riveted steel girders, and prestressed concrete beams and voided slabs. Reports with our findings were prepared and submitted to the County.
