As numerous tunnels in the United States began to show signs of considerable deterioration, it became necessary to develop a Tunnel Management System to guide highway and rail transit tunnel owners. Produced in conjunction with the Highway and Rail Transit Tunnel Maintenance and Rehabilitation Manual, this manual provides specific information for the inspection of tunnels. The manual includes information on inspection preparation, procedures, and documentation.
