Description: The Historic Structures Task Group (HSTG) is an interdisciplinary group composed of representatives of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Virginia Department of Historic Resources and the Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research. The group addresses the management of historic bridges in Virginia through combined expertise in bridge engineering, maintenance, and local history. Initially, the HSTG came together as part of an effort to inventory bridges throughout Virginia to evaluate the significance of the bridges surveyed and their eligibility for the National Register of Historic Places. The group was also instrumental in developing a management plan for addressing the bridges determined to be significant. Through these efforts, there has been a substantial reduction in the time and cost traditionally needed to address these bridges on a project-by-project basis.

Presently, the HSTG continues to function as an interdisciplinary group reviewing the significance of structures that have not been captured by the various inventories or through a periodic statewide evaluation update. The group’s combined expertise allows them to promptly reach a consensus on the historic significance of a structure in a timely manner.
