Hazardous materials remediation with historic bridge rehabilitation and donation
Historic Preservation/Cultural Resources
Under 1 year
Under 23 USC 144, any State that proposes to demolish a historic bridge for a replacement project...shall first make the historic bridge available for donation. Truss bridges are logical choices for for this program, however these structure can contain lead paint and other hazardous materials. Inter-state research regarding best management practices for remediation or abating such materials would be helpful. Tasks generally would include an summary of states who have/have not implemented remediation programs, costs associated with remediation, and liability once the bridge is donated.
The research topic generally appears to be of great interest among State DOT historic preservation personnel. The topic may be of interest to a crossover population of environmental disciplines.
