National Bridge Inspection Standards (NBIS) dictates that vehicular bridges, greater than 20 feet long, open to public travel, must have regular inspections by qualified bridge inspectors. Topside bridge inspections are required every 24 months. Underwater inspections are required at every 60 months for bridges with elements that cannot be accessed without diving equipment. Both inspections can be reduced if warranted by significant defects.
