The AASHTOWare™ Bridge Management software (BrM) was first developed under an NCHRP project sponsored by the FHWA in the early 1990s and soon thereafter was transferred to AASHTO for further development, maintenance, and support. For over 20 years, BrM has seen dramatic improvements due to technological changes, product innovations, and, most importantly, direct user feedback. As a key product in the AASHTOWare software suite, BrM continues to be widely used as the primary bridge management software by transportation agencies across the U.S., and internationally.
AASHTOWare’s efforts are headed by a Task Force comprised of State bridge engineering and information technology professionals. This Task Force manages the product and the contractor’s efforts on behalf of AASHTO and the user community in order to ensure development, maintenance, and support of the software meet the needs and requirements of current bridge owners in State and local agencies, governmental organizations such as the FHWA, and private consultants.
The latest official release of BrM is 6.6 which was accepted by the TAG and approved by the Task Force for release in July 2022. Agencies wishing to install and use this version should contact the contractor via email or phone call to request the software.

AASHTOWare Bridge Design (BrD) and AASHTOWare Bridge Rating (BrR) software products are comprehensive bridge design and load rating tools developed by AASHTO. For an agency’s bridge inventory, the products store detailed bridge descriptions sufficient for structural analysis. AASHTOWare Bridge Design is the tool for assisting in the design of both superstructures and substructures in accordance with the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications. AASHTOWare Bridge Rating is a tool for rating bridge superstructures in accordance with the AASHTO Manual for Bridge Evaluation, AASHTO Standard Specifications for Highway Bridges and AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications. The two products share much of their user interface and database. When both products are licensed, a bridge can be designed using AASHTOWare Bridge Design and be immediately available to AASHTOWare Bridge Rating for load rating without re-entering and validating additional data.
We recently released BrDR 7.0, which also signifies the completion of the multi-year modernization project. Visit this page to learn more about how we have improved BrDR for all DOTs.
