As long as traffic is flowing, the vast network of roadways and bridges connecting the U.S. is generally taken for granted by motorists.  However, for the agencies and individuals responsible for the highway system its care and maintenance is of critical interest.  So when a revolutionary new tool comes along that can diagnose and manage the health of bridges more efficiently and effectively, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and others in the industry are taking notice.
