Guide Bridge Special Provisions (GBSP)

GBSP's have been developed by IDOT's Bureau of Bridges and Structures in an effort to simplify the work involved in producing Special Provisions for items of work commonly associated with the design and construction of structures.

Special Instructions: The current GBSP's are available for download. Users can download individual or all files.
