Bridge Rating

ARE’s experienced and trained engineers prepare bridge ratings and load bearing capacity of railroad bridges – measuring the structural integrity of railroad bridges based on original plans adjusted by current conditions.

A Tool for Strategic Asset Management Decisions

Railroads have a need to understand the capacity of their bridges to carry current and expected loads. Our engineering team has rated thousands of railroad bridges throughout the country, and has developed programming to evaluate all bridge types. Our internal processes are continually assessed to improve the deliverables to our clients and the efficiencies of our team. We have structured procedures for bridge ratings and inspections that result in a thorough analysis of our clients’ capital facilities.
