As-Built Plan Record (Local Authorities)

As-Built Plan Record (Local Authorities)

Just curious... Do local state Dept of Transportation store as-built plans of bridges? For buildings, it'd be stored by county assessor (never had luck finding one though).

RE: As-Built Plan Record (Local Authorities)

I guess it depends on the agency.

RE: As-Built Plan Record (Local Authorities)

For local bridges in NYS, the government that owns the bridge is required to keep records and plans about the structure. They would most likely be kept at the office of the superintendent of highways, DPW commissioner, director of engineering, or some similar title. I would expect other states would have similar laws.

RE: As-Built Plan Record (Local Authorities)

@Ac - NYSDOT is very good when it comes to maintaining records; I've even gotten soil boring records from 70+ years ago. However, there are some agencies that can't find plans for what they built 5 years ago.

RE: As-Built Plan Record (Local Authorities)

Well, with 1600 municipalities in the state, there are bound to be some bad apples!
