Steuben County’s bridges are inspected bi-annually in accordance with federal mandates. Steuben County, with oversight from INDOT, selects a consultant every four (4) years to perform these inspections. Bridge inspections are funded by the Cumulative Bridge Fund. The bridge inspection program is an 80/20 federal program which means that 80% of the cost to inspect our county's bridges is reimbursed from the Federal Highway Administration and is administered by INDOT to Steuben County.
