Inspection Coding Guide

PONTIS is an AASHTOWare program for bridge asset management inspection used by CDOT. The CDOT Pontis Bridge Inspection Coding Guide is intended to supplement the AASHTO Guide for Commonly Recognized (CoRe) Structural Elements with clarifying information and additional elements unique to Colorado bridges and structures. If conflicts occur between the guides, the AASHTO guide governs.
