It is of great significance to timely and accurately forecast the safety state of the bridge as far as the maintenance is concerned. Bayesian forecasting is a method of deriving posterior distribution in accord with the sampling information and prior information, where real time online forecasting is realized by means of recursive algorithm and the stationary assumption. Bayesian dynamic linear model is created to forecast the reliability of the bridge on the basis of the observed stress information of a bridge structure. According to the observed information, the model created is a superposition of constant mean model and seasonal effect model. The analysis of a practical example illustrates tha Bayesian dynamic linear modes can provide an accurate real time forecast of the reliability of the bridge
