Lone Pine’s Heavy and Highway Division has worked on the rehabilitation and renovation of numerous covered bridges in the tri-state area. Many of these bridges are over 100 years old, so these projects have typically included extensive structural replacement. In order for these bridges to support the weight of modern vehicles, the Heavy and Highway Division has replaced the old wooden floor beams on the bridge deck with stronger steel beams. Projects have also included the repair and/or replacement of concrete abutments and piers, timber, roofing and siding on these bridges. Lone Pine also is regularly involved with Historical Society representatives when working on these types of projects.
Past covered bridge projects have included:
- McConnell’s Mill, Butler, PA
- Bank’s, Butler, PA
- New Baltimore, Somerset, PA
- Glessner, Somerset, PA
- Fishcreek, West Virginia 1, Cooper’s Rock, WV
