At the recent American Road and Transportation Builders Association Transportation Development Foundation’s (ARTBA-TDF) third annual “Globe Awards” ceremony, the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) was honored for environmental excellence in the statewide preservation of historic bridges through the implementation of the Historic Bridge Management System (HBMS). The HBMS uses Intergraph’s GeoMedia(R) solutions to effectively manage historic bridge inventory and enhance mitigation during the historic bridge replacement process by providing an easily accessible, centralized data management system via an intranet. The geo-referenced database gives the AHTD the ability to easily analyze spatial distribution of historic bridges, evaluate bridges for nomination to the National Register or the Arkansas Register of Historic Places, monitor historic bridge replacement, and develop management and preservation plans.
