Structure Information Management System (SIMS)

To fulfill the NBIS requirements, IDOT relies on local roads and streets agencies to collect and report inventory and inspection data for their structures. A county or municipality, using standard IDOT forms, provides the information to its respective district Bureau of Local Roads and Streets office. The data reported includes periodic field condition and safety appraisals and occasional changes to the basic inventory for each in-service bridge as well as the inventorying of each new structure built. Once IDOT receives the data it is keyed into lSIS. 

SIMS County files are compatible with 32 bit versions of Access 2013 and Access 2016.  The 32-bit version of Office is automatically installed unless you have selected the 64-bit version.  To check what version of Office you are using, please click here
