August 16, 2002 - We, the Hoyle, Tanner & Associates, are part of a design-build team with Tim Andrews of Barns and Bridges of New England on the rehabilitation of the Cilleyville-Bog Covered Bridge in Andover, NH. The scope of the project involves repairs to the abutments, new roof framing that will replicate the original framing (the current roof is not at all similar to the original framing and was installed after a heavy snow collapsed the roof), repairs to the trusses, and new floor beams and decking. Tim should begin work on the repairs within the next month and is taking great care to ensure that the work is true to the original and is done with traditional methods. I obviously do not have any construction photos but have attached a photo of the bridge as it currently stands.

We also have three other projects in design or bidding. The Twin Bridge in Rutland, VT; a new pedestrian covered bridge in Island Pond, VT and the rehabilitation of the Comstock bridge in Montgomery, VT. In each case our client needs to make some decisions before we know the exact direction of the project.
