Abstract: 
Today"s the transportation facilities such as terminals, street, bridge, etc, represent the ‎major investment in highway network. Every year tremendous resources should be ‎invested to maintain these facilities. Among them, the Bridge Management System ‎‎(B.M.S) has been necessitated by large imbalance between extensive bridge repair ‎and maintenance needs and limited available budget. So the main purpose of this ‎research study is to develop an optimization methodology to allocate the limited ‎resource among the most bridge maintenance demanded projects. The reduction of ‎user cost or increased the user benefit can be considered as the main objective ‎function of the developed Dynamic Programming Optimization Model. The results of ‎the implementing of optimization model shows a tremendous cost savings, and as a ‎result, more demanded bridge requiring the maintenance can be selected‏.‏
