Field Performance of Timber Highway Bridges: A National Study

The objective of this study is to assess the condition of several timber highway bridges in various climatic regions and establish a baseline for evaluating future performance. The project is national in scope and will focus on timber bridge structures located in the Pacific Northwest, the Arid South, the Midwest, the South and the Northeast. Several cooperators will be involved in this effort, each focusing their efforts in one of the climatic regions. This agreement will cover those bridges located in the Midwest Region of the United States.
