AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications, 7th Edition

These Specifications are intended for use in the design, evaluation, and rehabilitation of bridges, and are mandated by the Federal Highway Administration for use on all bridges using federal funding.  This new edition—which includes 15 sections—contains clearer direction on seismic isolation design, as well as a number of updates to the following 7 sections: Section 3, Loads; Section 4, Structural Analysis; Section 5, Concrete; Section 6, Steel; Section 10, Foundations; Section 11, Abutments; and Section 12, Buried Structures.

The specifications are available in print, or as a PDF download. Customers can also purchase a kit that includes both the print and PDF download versions. And, in fall 2014, AASHTO will also release the first web-based version of this publication.

More detailed information on this publication, and the changes made from the previous edition, is available in this informational video.

FHWA Preservation Toolbox

Visit our Technical Service Program TSP2

The American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) is dedicated to the preservation and maintenance of highway assets. In May 2006, the National Center for Pavement Preservation (NCPP) was contracted to develop and administer its new Transportation System Preservation Technical Services Program (TSP∙2). The program was initiated as an efficient means to disseminate information to AASHTO member agencies for preserving their highway infrastructure, including both pavements and bridges. Its principal mission will be to serve as a clearinghouse with
comprehensive and up-to-date information on efficient and effective preservation measures that enhance highway performance and extend useful life.
