Posted on November 17, 2016

Purpose:

 "To preserve covered bridges. To gather and record knowledge of the history of covered bridges. To collect and preserve pictures, printed, and manuscript matter and other articles of historical interest concerning covered bridges. To do all things, alone or in cooperation with other persons or corporations, necessary or advisable to carry out any or all of the foregoing purposes and objects."

The Dreibelbis Bridge in Berks County, Pennsylvania needs your help! PennDOT is looking for public input on the project. The present proposal will seriously damage the historic integrity of the structure. See all the details.
