Examining and discussing the restoration procedures to be applied to historical bridges is of great importance in terms of preserving the authenticity of these structures. Other bridges and viaducts are engineering structures that fulfill a very important need today. Developments in science and technology, technologies to be applied in bridge design and construction increase expectations. One of the important duties of civil engineers is to respond to these expectations: "
be discussed by experts in the field of bridge applications in Turkey and abroad and Akyildiz, indicating that useful for civil engineers in terms of professional knowledge and development of the examined, "since the year 2011 is an important bridge and viaduct projects in our country was implemented.
