Cultural Resources Covered Bridge Protection

The Federal Highway Administration, State Historic Preservation Office, Ohio Historic Bridge Association,and the Ohio Department of Transportation have identified approximately 100 Covered Bridges, open to traffic, which could potentially benefit from a federally-sponsored initiative to install fire protection, lighting, and surveillance equipment. The objective of this initiative is to protect Ohio’s National Register of Historic Places (listed and eligible for listing) covered bridges, important transportation heritage and tourism resources, from fire damage and vandalism.

To follow the progress of this project and Ohio's participation, bookmark this page and check back often for updates and new links in the toolkit below.
