Bridge Inspection & Streambed Scour Seminar

This Seminar is designed for Consultants, Contractors, Engineers, Front Line Supervisors, Foremen, Managers, Roadmasters, Superintendents and Supervisors who are involved in bridge construction and maintenance.  As well as rail professionals involved in/with track, bridge and civil engineering design.  Additionally, those who are interested in engineering services, maintenance-of-way, structures, and/or track should attend this seminar.  You can also benefit from attending this seminar if you are responsible for inspecting track and bridges during heavy rains and rendering decisions to allow train operations during and after these storms.  Have you ever gone over a 100-year-old railroad bridge? Have you ever seen what water can do to a bridge if left to its own devices? If a structural member has a crack in it, is it serious? This Seminar is designed to give the railway professional an understanding of what is involved in inspecting bridges, culverts and tunnels to ensure they are safe for the passage of trains. Led by experienced railroad bridge professionals, this Seminar will give you a basis for knowing when to ask an expert about a potential concern. The instructors teach the participant how to recognize early signs of issues that, if not addressed, can develop into serious problems. The Bridge Inspection portion of the Seminar is based on the NEW AREMA Bridge Inspection Handbook published in 2017.
