Bridge Inventory & Inspection Section

 Mike Brokaw, P.E. 

Assistant Administrator (614) 387-6210

Our section provides standards, guidelines, snooper-access and training to bridge engineers and bridge inspectors so they can safely and consistently manage the bridges in their jurisdiction.  

    I. ODOT Bridge Inventory and Inspection Collection Applications
    • AssetWise Landing Page - AssetWise is the web application where all bridge inventory and inspection data is collected starting May 11, 2020.  The landing page has change request forms, video tutorials and frequently asked questions and should be used in conjunction with AssetWise.
    • Structure Management System (SMS) Landing Page - SMS used to be the web application between July 2014 and March 2020.  It was replaced by Assetwise (link above).  SMS was retired on March 26th 2020.  The site is read-only and available for a limited time.  Access for ODOT requires your Active Directory sign-in is managed through MyODOT (for non ODOT employees). 
    II. Available Training 
    • Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) - Register for available bridge inspection training in Ohio.  Level 1 and Level 2 Comprehensive Bridge Inspection Training, Bridge Inspection Refresher Training (online) and ODOT hosted National Highway Institute (NHI) training are all administered by LTAP.
    III. ODOT Web Applications and Resources
    IV. National Bridge Inventory and Inspection Resources
