While there have been many studies on life cycle cost analysis and preventive maintenance planning, this study proposes an innovative method of bridge asset management in South Korea. Two different levels of approaches were used in this study. First, in the level of bridge elements, deterioration modeling and optimized maintenance repair and rehabilitation (MR&R) planning on bridge assets are proposed, using the bridge historical data of Han River in the city of Seoul. Second, the network level of bridge asset management is suggested, using historical MR&R cost and budget, overall-condition assessment results, and health index data. These two levels of approaches were developed into an Internet-based application so that facility managers can use them to review their past budgets and to plan their future budget based on historical data.
