Since bridges cross over large spans of space they often cross significant features such as busy transportation corridors. In addition, bridges carry heavy vehicles sometimes with dangerous cargos, such as fuel and hazardous chemicals.
The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Web-Only Document 307: Recommended Guidelines for the Selection of Test Levels 2 Through 5 Bridge Railings proposes selection guidelines to assist bridge engineers and highway designers in selecting an appropriate test level for bridge railings based on specific site and traffic conditions.
