Covered Bridge Protection

Ross Red Covered Bridge, Shelby County

The Federal Highway Administration, State Historic Preservation Office, Ohio Historic Bridge Association and ODOT have identified approximately100 covered bridges open to traffic which could potentially benefit from a federally sponsored initiative to install fire protection, lighting and surveillance equipment. The objective of this initiative is to protect Ohio's National Register of Historic Places (listed and eligible for listing) covered bridges, important transportation heritage and tourism resources from fire damage and vandalism.
