Volume 2, Number 2 July 2015
From the Director’s Desk Dear Friends of Historic Bridges, As we prepared the July issue of the Historic Bridge Bulletin, summer became official and thoughts of vacation are close at hand. As you travel, enjoy the many historic sites and bridges that tell the story of our nation. Tourism dollars help sustain communities and help fund projects that preserve our heritage. Please make an effort to visit some of the magnificent historic bridges scattered across the U.S. and take the time to photograph these engineering landmarks. Share your photos and stories with the Historic Bridge Foundation—we are always looking for great photographs and stories for the website and the newsletter. Happy Travels!
