There are some 600,000 officially listed bridges in the Federal Highway Administration's "National Bridge Inventory."  Nearly 25% are classified as functinally obsolete or structurally deficient and are in need of repair or replacement.  These infrastructure needs will continue to create demand at both the academic and professional engineering level for up-to-date, reliable guidance in current bridge technology.  In addition, advances in bridge design and analysis, coupled with significant, recent revisions to the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) bridge specifications are covered in this new edition.
