Historic Bridge Marketing Pages

One way in which historic bridges may be preserved is when a bridge slated for replacement is given to a new owner for relocation and restoration/rehabilitation. Similarly, abandoned bridges may be available for relocation and reuse. This is referred to a historic bridge marketing. Need a bridge for a bike path, nature trail, or golf course? Instead of spending money on a nondescript pre-fabricated truss bridge, consider instead reusing a historic bridge that will be a beautiful historic landmark, while also promoting the values of sustainability. Some states have made the bridges they are currently marketing available on a website. The links to those websites appear below.
