A Bridge Preservation Guide (Pub. No. FHWA-HIF-11042) available from the Federal Highway Administration ( http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/bridge/preservation/guide/guide.pdf ) provides definitions for terms such as bridge preservation, preventive maintenance, rehabilitation, and state of good repair, along with related commentary that includes more information and examples. Also featured is a framework for establishing a Systematic Preventive Maintenance program for bridges.
 
 A new online bridge preservation toolbox developed by the Federal Highway Administration (http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/bridge/preservation/) serves as a compendium of bridge preservation-related information and strategies. The information is structured under four main categories: Legislation and Policies, Bridge Management, Bridge Preservation Treatments, and Research and Development.
