FHWA'S COVERED BRIDGE MANUAL SOON
NOTICE: At long last -- the Covered Bridge Manual will soon be in print and
available for free. Phil Pierce, Consulting Engineer and covered bridge specialist, and
his team, have completed preparation of the new manual for the Federal Highway Administration.
With major focus on the engineering and construction of covered bridges, it also includes diverse
information and should be a good reference for anyone interested in covered bridges. To request
your free copy, write to John O'Fallon at the Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center, FHWA,
6300 Georgetown Pike, McLean, VA 22101 or send an e-mail to: John.O'Fallon@fhwa.dot.gov.
For those of you who previously sent a note to Phil expressing interest in the manual, he has
forwarded names and addresses to Mr. O'Fallon. You are urged to contact Mr. O'Fallon to
confirm your contact information.
