Round Peg/Square Hole: Developing the Guidelines for RehabilitatingHistoric Covered Bridges”
Fifteen years in the making, the National Park Service publication, is one of the final deliverables that NPS Historic
American Engineering Record will produce for FHWA's National Covered Bridges Preservation Program. The initiative has
funded the rehabilitation of over 200 covered bridges nationwide since 2002, as well as educational and research
projects by both HAER and United States Department of Agriculture's Forest Products Laboratory. Once published, the
Guidelines will be a useful resource for educating engineers, State Historic Preservation Officers, Departments of
Transportation, bridge owners, preservationists, residents, and industrial archeologists, in preserving these historic
symbols of American engineering for future generations.
