Due the fact that the decision to execute repair works is made by determining the repair priority through its importance and health conditions, thus focusing mainly on the safety and cost profit, there is a lack of indexes to evaluate whether the repair plan to extend the structural life agrees to the inhabitant's Kansei or not. In this study, in order to propose a method reflecting the inhabitants' Kansei in repair plans, the inhabitants' aesthetic evaluation is reflected and additional judgment of whether the Kansei index is satisfied or not were considered. As a method reflecting the inhabitant's Kansei in the repair plan, defining the Kansei compatibility was considered by: (a) considering the design concept at the project design stage and (b) redefining the inhabitant's kansei at the point where the repair necessity decision is made, were considered and enquires on an actual bridge were carried out and verified.
