Bridges & Structures


Attention icon


The Bridges and Structures Bureau is committed to providing accurate electronic files of our standards. With our recent migration from Bentley V8i to the Bentley CONNECT platform, the formatting of the .dgn files available at the links below and through ProjectWise is continuing to evolve. We recommend that users of these .dgn files compare their resulting project sheets to the provided .pdf files to ensure the intended results. Edits to the .dgn file format are acceptable at the discretion of the user. 


The bridge standards available on this page include an 8.5” standard deck thickness and single slope bridge rail.

The newly released standards can be used immediately. These standards were developed using the Bentley Connect Edition of MicroStation.

The Master Common Details file contains common details that are referenced by several groups of standards. This file shall be used in combination with the  groups of standards to provide the common details referenced to the sheet models.

The Bentley V8i Edition of the bridge standards remain available at Bridge V8i Standards
