Asked for comment on the East Shoreham Railroad covered Bridge rehabilitation project, John Weaver, Vtrans Project Manager replied: "The project field work was completed by mid January 2008. The top chord and roof are new and approximately half of the bottom chord has been replaced. Otherwise - diagonals, floor framing, siding and bracing are minimally repaired/replaced or original components. There are a few brand new triangular metal bearing plates. As you probably remember, this heavy bridge required extensive shoring during rehabilitation looks a lot better now. The standing seam metal roof should last many years." — Joe Nelson
