New Revision to Steel Erection Specification Now Available

The latest revision to the AASHTO-NSBA Steel Bridge Erection Guide Specification, S10.1 is now available. This document establishes and defines the basic minimum requirements for the transportation, handling and erection of steel bridge components.

The document has been revised based upon input from the bridge design and construction communities. The majority of revisions occur in Section 2, which was expanded from four to five subsections and retitled “Erection Engineering.” These updates further refine the processes that should be in place prior to field erection to better ensure safety, reliability and economy.

The work was developed by the AASHTO/NSBA Steel Bridge Collaboration Task Group 10, which is comprised of contributing members from the design consulting, DOT and fabrication communities. S10.1’s revisions continue the Collaboration’s mission of distributing standardized best practices between owners, designers and contractors.

The revised document is available as a free download from the AASHTO/NSBA Steel Bridge Collaboration webpage (direct link) as well as the AASHTO website.
