In keeping with the national effort to preserve historic bridges, ODOT has a designated list of reuseable bridges available for reuse.
Relocation, Reassembly Costs
If a bridge cannot be sold and a recipient accepts donation of the bridge, the recipient can be reimbursed for costs incurred in such activities as relocation, site preparation, reassembly, etc. costs eligible for reimbursement to preserve a historic bridge which is no longer used on a public road shall not exceed the estimated cost of demolition.
Costs incurred by the State to preserve a historic bridge (including funds made available to the State, locality or private entity to enable it to accept the bridge) shall be eligible as reimbursable project costs under this chapter in a amount not to exceed the cost of demolition.
