Effective Bridge Condition Target Setting Methods
This is the fourth workshop in the six-part series presenting the research project NCHRP 23-07: Guidebook on Effective Methods For Setting Transportation Performance Targets. In this event, researchers present bridge condition target setting methods including an overview of the current methods, challenges facing implementation, and the experiences of different State DOTs using scenario analysis to set targets. Many agencies have been shifting to setting targets based on National Bridge Inventory Elements data due to recent changes in bridge data collection procedures. Some of the challenges in this area center around identifying data and aligning the target-setting process with project development times.
