The AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design 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. These Specifications employ the Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFL) methodology using factors developing from current statistical knowledge of loads and structural performance.
