Project Summary

Hoyle, Tanner was retained by the Town of Bath to complete a comprehensive Engineering Study of the Bath Village Bridge which serves as a major link between sections of Town with the detour around the bridge being approximately 10 miles. It is one of the oldest covered bridges in the country and our third covered bridge project for the Town of Bath.

The timber bridge is approximately 375’+ long, 25″+ wide, has 7 spans and spans the Ammonoosuc River. The engineering study evaluated two options: rehabilitate the bridge for a 6 live load limit or rehabilitate it for a 10 live load limit.

After the engineering study, Hoyle, Tanner provided inspection, evaluation, and recommendations for repairs and rehabilitative design, prepared a detailed rehabilitative design based on our findings, and provided construction administration and inspection services.
