Evaluation and Rehabilitation of Historic Metal Truss Bridges: Preservation Issues

Matthew Haberling and Daniel Leary


This report documents the results of a survey of preservation issues for the evaluation and rehabilitation of historic metal truss bridges. The survey included twenty Departments of Transportation from states other than Texas and was conducted by telephone interviews and/or the exchanging of information by fax. The survey may contribute to the development of a manual for Texas Department of Transportation engineers considering rehabilitation options for metal truss bridges. This information may assist in identifying preservation methods that will likely be accepted by the State Historic Preservation Officer.
