Bridge Maintenance

Caltrans provides inspection services for bridges in California. Inspection reports provided to local agencies to use (along with their own evaluations) to schedule routine repairs or to identify more complex repairs that will be performed by an outside contractor using engineered plans as funding is made available. 


The County Department of Public Works utilizes its own bridge and roadway maintenance crews to perform routine repairs and select timber member replacements, guardrail repairs, and roadway repairs. More complex repairs are sent to outside contractors as funding is identified and made available. To report a road repair, please use Report a Road Problem.

Maintenance Projects
In addition to routine maintenance, special maintenance projects are funded through federal Bridge Preventative Maintenance Program (BPMP).
