Historic bridge management training
Learn about what makes a bridge historic and how to retain important historic features while meeting engineering and safety needs. Enroll in a seminar on the regulations, management and rehabilitation of historic bridges by the National Preservation Institute in April or September.
Historic bridges represent a wide variety of important engineering and designs. In addition, historic bridge rehabilitation projects must navigate the requirements of the NEPA, Section 106 and Section 4(f). All this can be tricky.
In these seminars you will learn bridge typology and history, discuss impacts, avoidance of adverse effects, alternatives and solutions. Interactive exercises will explore how a collaborative team approach to historic bridge rehabilitation projects benefits the design process and meet engineering, historic standards and regulatory requirements.
Two seminars on the management, regulations and rehabilitation of historic bridges will be held:
- April 4-5 in Austin, Texas, taught by Amy Squitieri, principal at Mead & Hunt, and Amber L. Blanchard, bridge engineer from the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
- September 12-13 in Portland, Oregon, taught by Kristen M. Zschomler, supervisor of the Cultural Resources Unit of the Minnesota Department of Transportation, and Steve Olson, principal bridge engineer of Olson & Nesvold Engineers.
Each seminar highlights a collaborative approach and offers a blend of perspectives from an engineer and historian. The seminars are relevant for beginners as well as seasoned veterans in both the public and private sector.
NPI offers these and many other training opportunities tailored to cultural resource management professional.
