Current Bridge Law

The current bridge law primarily defines the responsibilities for bridge maintenance and capital improvements for all public bridges, minor spans, and smaller structures.

Capital Improvements of Local Bridges

Bridges in the MaineDOT Work Plan are bridges funded for improvements in the following two years.

MaineDOT biennially prepares a prioritized list of bridges eligible for replacement or improvement, based on available funding and a professional review team’s recommendations. A bridge that is in a current work plan normally requires about two years to complete the preliminary engineering and secure any and all permits, along with property acquisition and/or easements. Construction may take up to two years. In an emergency, the Commissioner of MaineDOT may initiate any bridge capital improvement.

Technical Assistance from MaineDOT

Upon request by a municipality, the Department shall provide limited technical advice regarding repair and capital improvement options without assuming any cost of or liability to the municipality. This assistance can be obtained by contacting the Bridge Maintenance Office in Augusta at (207) 624-3580.

The advice may be for temporary or permanent repairs, reinforcement, or reconstruction by the municipality. It may also include recommendations, suggestions, methods of accomplishing the work, and sketches. The Bridge Maintenance section cannot provide complete plans. In addition to this advice, some field guidance may be available either from the Augusta Bridge Maintenance Office or from the local Regional Bridge Maintenance Manager, depending on the type of advice needed.
