The maintaining authority shall keep a record of interim inspections available for review by the department and federal authorities. If the maintaining authority has failed to perform the inspection, the county highway commissioner in the county in which the bridge is located shall perform the interim inspections as directed by the department and keep a record of the interim inspections available for review by the department and federal authorities. Upon receipt of the department's notice and direction, the county shall perform the interim inspections or cause them to be performed.
