An alternative method of prioritization for concrete bridge maintenance, repair, and rehabilitation
activities is required due to the inability of the current system to manage the increasing nmnber of
aging concrete bridges. The Concrete Bridge Prioritization System was proposed because of its
ability to address the critical technical parameters of safety and cost benefit in prioritization of
funding and work allocation. The analysis includes four parts, service life assessment, service life
extension, cost calculation, and prioritization. The system combines these parts to optimize
consideration of the technical parameters. A systems engineering approach to the investigation
and design of the Concrete Bridge Prioritization System is included.
