They will also measure each weight your team intends to use for the Load Test(s) and verify that the length, width, and height of each weight is no more than 12in (30.5cm) per dimension. In the Bridge Check-In Area, the Appraisers will ask your team to place each Bridge part or Load Test weight resting with its longest side on or parallel to a table or flat surface. The length of the Bridge part or Load Test weight in this orientation will be measured parallel to the table between the furthest points of the Bridge part or Load Test weight. The width will be measured perpendicular to the length along the table. The height will be measured vertically from the table to the tallest point of the Bridge part or Load Test weight.”
