Comments: Final report delivered to AASHTO SCOE

In 2008, the Center for Environmental Excellence by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) established a web-based Historic Bridge Preservation Community of Practice (CoP). The CoP provides an on-line forum for invited participants to identify and discuss emerging needs and issues associated with the identification, evaluation, and management of our nation’s historic bridges. Individuals invited to join the Historic Bridges CoP include bridge engineers from the public and private sectors and academia; and historic preservation professionals, from the public and private sector. The goal is to have an interdisciplinary group of professionals so multiple view points and experiences can guide the CoP’s efforts.

The goals of this NCHRP 25-25 research study were to compile and disseminate best/current practices and lessons learned.  The final report is available here.
