Establishing a Bridge Preservation Program (130106B) focuses on efforts in developing a bridge preservation program. This course includes a lesson on the establishment of goals, objective and performance measures in a bridge preservation program. The course goes in-depth into the needs assessment and data management process, including the creation of a bridge preservation strategy, and it outlines the prioritization process. A lesson on budgeting and resource allocation describes the linkage between data to budgeting and resource allocation activities. The course also includes a lesson on work plan development and implementation with specific details on implementing network, corridor, and site specific strategies. The course concludes with a lesson on program monitoring.

This course is the second course in the three-course Bridge Preservation Web-based Training (WBT) series which includes Bridge Preservation Fundamentals (130106A) and Communication Strategies for Bridge Preservation (130106C). This course series covers areas such as concepts of bridge preservation; how to establish and maintain a good bridge preservation program; best practices; common treatments and strategies; and resource management strategies (in-house vs. contract).
