Bridge Applications Manual

/files/live/sites/wydot/files/shared/Bridge/Bridge%20Applications%20Manual/Bridge-Applications-Manual-cover.jpg

The Bridge Applications Manual is intended to be the primary source of information on the detailing and management practices of the Wyoming Department of Transportation's Bridge Program. Other sources of information may need to be consulted. For uniformity and consistency of the final set of plans, the methods and practices stated in this manual should be followed, unless special conditions warrant otherwise.

This manual is a guide for the preparation of common structural projects and because of the many variations possible in plan preparation, literal conformation may not be feasible. In these applications, sound engineering judgment must be used.
