Workin' Bridges NSRGA brings to the table the plans, the tools and expertise to restore truss bridges by generating expert, detailed estimates and schedules for repair and restoration, while adhering to the Secretary of Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation of Historic Structures. As a non-profit we are able to offer a variety of methods in working with alternative funding sources.

“Restoring bridges has been one of my passions for the last twelve years and I’ve been looking for a way to save more bridges so this affiliation with Workin’ Bridges is promising. Julie learned a lot over the last year and has proved her tenacity in working through the problem solving,” said Nels Raynor, owner of BACH. With more than 30 years experience as an owner/operator of the steel fabrication company, Raynor is a leading expert in the U.S. in hot riveting, and holds MiDOT certifications in welding. 

Workin’ Bridges is a collaboration with BACH Steel and is a trademarked division of NSRGA.
