Equations clarifying how costs depend on site-specific conditions and technical criteria is needed for planning and technical optimization. Knowledge about approximate costs is also needed to build incentive models that spur innovation within contracts in a natural and effective way. The amounts involved are substantial why at least an annual update of the models by researchers or practitioners is reasonable. This paper comment and update previous models and discusses life-cycle-cost aspects of bridge maintenance versus replacement issues.
