The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is requesting comments on proposed revisions to its national bridge inspection standards (NBIS).

In the Federal Register, FHWA said the proposed changes would clarify the NBIS language that is vague or ambiguous, reorganize NBIS into a more logical sequence, and make it easier for inspectors and administrators to read and understand.

The agency said that its proposal is needed to address perceived uncertainties in the NBIS that have been identified since the regulation was last updated 14 years ago.

NBIS was developed as a result of the Federal Aid Highway Act of 1968. Its primary purpose is to locate and evaluate existing bridge deficiencies to ensure the safety of the traveling public.
